Gary Neville has joined The Consello Group, a global advisory and investing firm as a partner in the firm’s Consello Strive business and will be chairman of their UK business.

A property developer and entrepreneur Neville has most recently joined the BBC TV show Dragons Den to add to his ever growing list of projects spanning media, hospitality and real estate development as part of his Relentless Group, which includes Hotel Football, the boutique university UA92 and his co-ownership of League two football club Salford City.

In his role as Chairman of Consello Strive in the UK, Neville will oversee the company’s efforts to expand its financial advisory business since opening in London last year.

Declan Kelly, Chairman and CEO of Consello, said: “Gary is a born leader, world class athlete and successful entrepreneur who takes a self-described relentless approach to all of his professional and personal pursuits. We are thrilled to have him join our team and to help us further build out our presence in the UK in the months and years ahead. We will also be working directly with Gary to expand his business interests in the U.S. and other regions, further building on the very successful career he has developed both inside and outside of football over the last number of years.”

Neville said: “Having worked in professional sports, media and entertainment for more than 30 years, I’ve seen firsthand how this world is evolving through technological innovation, content globalization, and the increasing role of institutional investment. Strive has assembled an exceptional team that is uniquely well-positioned to help corporations, leagues, teams and brands navigate these dynamic industries and reach their full potential.”

Launched in January, Consello Strive serves as an advisory, investing, IP & content management and leadership development platform to support businesses commercializing and operating in sports, media and entertainment, including corporations, leagues, teams and prominent individuals. 

Other Consello Strive partners include seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, who has become the co-owner of English Championship team football team Birmingham City; 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams; two-time NBA champion and NBA Basketball Hall of Famer Pau Gasol; former President and CEO of WW International Mindy Grossman; and Uber co-founder Oscar Salazar.
