Greg Hadfield

A session at Open-data Cities Conference

Friday 20th April, 2012

4:45pm to 5:15pm (GMT)

Greg was the first national newspaper journalist to leave Fleet Street for the internet in the mid-1990s. A former news editor of The Sunday Times, he and his son, Tom – then aged 12 – created Soccernet, the world’s most popular football website, in 1995.

Four years later, after Soccernet was sold to ESPN for $40m, Greg created Schoolsnet, an education website, which he sold to a company co-owned by Jeremy Hunt, now Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport.

Most recently, he was head of digital development and Telegraph Media Group and director of strategic projects at Cogapp, a leading digital agency.
