Max fulfils two quite different roles with the EBU - those of Chief Tournament Director and Chief Tournament Manager. The second of these involving:
- managing all EBU Competitions
- having overall responsibility for the regulation of P2P, Licensing and Masterpoints
- advising and supporting the Tournament Committee
- advising and supporting the Selection Committee
This requires significantly more time than the first. Accordingly we are very pleased to announce that from 1 April 2011, Gordon Rainsford will be joining the EBU on a 1-day a week basis as Assistant Chief Tournament Director. Max will, for the time being, formally retain the position of Chief Tournament Director and Gordon will report to him.
