About Me

Hello. My name is Eddie May.

I’ve worked in marketing and communications for the best part of 25 years – mostly in the world of sport. 

I’ve spent time heading up the marketing team for Umbro, as well as co-founding and running two award-winning agencies (Threepipe and The Playbook), before setting up Overdog in early 2018, to offer a more personal consultancy service to clients in sport. 

Over the years I’ve worked with a range of sponsors, sports brands and rights holders including Stella Artois, Levi’s, Standard Chartered, Umbro, New Balance, EA Sports, the NFL, EFL, ECB, CIMSPA and many more.

I approach every piece of work with a highly commercial mindset – always looking for ways that good insight and the right strategy can ultimately add to the bottom line.

My qualifications:

  • Data Analysis for Management. London School of Economics, 2021
  • Mini MBA in Marketing. Mark Ritson/Marketing Week, 2016
  • Advanced Certificate in Marketing. Chartered Institute of Marketing, 1998
  • BA (Hons) Sport and Recreation Studies. University of Birmingham, 1995

I live in north Essex with my wife and three children where (when not working) I coach football and cricket with local youth teams and play some wildly inconsistent golf.
