Leaders in Focus: Amazon's Alex Green

Leaders Sport Business Podcast

07-12-2023 • 31 mins

Amazon's European sports chief reflects on five years of Premier League coverage and building out the company's rights portfolio.

*This conversation was recorded shortly before the Premier League announced its new domestic media rights deal.*

Amazon's rights portfolio includes Uefa Champions League deals in Italy and Germany, plus Ligue 1 and Roland Garros in France - thanks in large part to Alex Green, Managing Director of Sport, Europe for Prime Video.

On the latest edition of Leaders in Focus, Green speaks to Leaders' James Emmett and Cameron Macdonald to discuss his work at Amazon and explore his own leadership in the media sector - his tactics at the negotiating table, how he deals with setback and a customer-obsessed approach. Green also explains how Prime Video's sports team is able to draw on Amazon's vast engineering capacity and why we're simply not talking about latency in sports streaming as much any more.
