ABOUT TESSEN

TERRY SANDS (Managing Director)

Having both played and been involved with Rugby throughout my life, sporting values have become seminal to my personality, and I have grown to appreciate the many benefits sport can offer on a personal, community and commercial level.

As a sport and event management professional with over 20 years’ experience of managing and delivering major local, national and international events - including the UK’s Super Sevens Series - I provide consultancy and advice from grass roots to corporate level, that delivers results.

 

Respecting models of good practice, I challenge constructively - drawing on my experience - to deliver the best results, every time, without compromise.

 

I have a passion for problem solving with a varied skillset and committed work ethic, thriving under pressure to meet deadlines and deliver at a world class level. 

 

Having founded Samurai Sportswear, an International multi-sport teamwear brand, in 1996 and heading up the company as CEO for 25 years, I bring with me a wealth of commercial experience and a huge network of connections. 

 

Tessen Sports Services Limited is the exclusive licence holder for distribution of the Samurai brand throughout East Africa.
