Building upon 14 years of sustained growth delivering advisory and commercial services to sport and live entertainment clients in UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Saudi Arabia, TSC has further strengthened its offices in Abu Dhabi and Riyadh through the twin appointments of Regional Partner Kailash Nagdev and Regional Associate Partner Torrey Dorsey.

TSC CEO and Founder, Angus Buchanan said “Over recent years, the Middle East has demanded increasing levels of insight-led commercial expertise as investors across the GCC continue to build major event, capital asset and IP portfolios.

TSC prides itself on its ability to combine global industry expertise with region-centric specificity. The appointments of Kailash and Torrey further embeds this global expertise in our Abu Dhabi and Riyadh offices, giving our regional clients the benefit of their cumulative 4 decades of sport and live event IP and investment expertise.”

Kailash Nagdev has spent over 15 years in the region working with cities, brands, and mega events to develop their strategies, execute their commercial plans and evaluate their legacy impacts.  Nagdev said; “Having worked on World Expo Dubai 2020 from initial feasibility through to final delivery, I have a unique perspective on the transformational change (and delivery challenges!) that come with mega events in the region. 

I look forward to growing TSC’s regional practice as we continue to support rightsholders, destinations, capital asset owners and investors maximise their return on investment.”

New Associate Partner, Torrey Jay Dorsey is a senior strategic partnerships and sales professional and 20+ year veteran of the industry, with experience working across a vast and varied portfolio of events and with some of the leading global agencies including IMG and Infront Sports & Media. More recently, he was the Vice-President, Global Commercial Sales, APAC for SailGP and the Global Sales Director for the FIM World Supercross Championship.  

“I am thrilled to be joining Angus and the team as they continue their global expansion. My new remit helping to drive TSC’s Major Events & Campaigns business unit, as well as to grow the GCC and APAC businesses, plays directly to my background in helping rightsholders and host cities develop mutually beneficial and impactful live event partnerships.”
