LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — O2 Arena's David Campbell is to quit his role as chief executive and president of AEG Europe to take up a post with Geneva-based Allsport Management, run by entrepreneur Paddy McNally.As well as transforming the O2, Campbell boasts an impressive CV as he was previously boss of Virgin Radio prior to overseeing its sale for £225million, and was also head of the London Tourist Board according to The Press Association.
Confirming the appointment, Ecclestone said: "He is going to join Allsport run by Mr McNally in Geneva and be helping him. He needs a bit of help."
"He hasn't started yet, so we'll have to see what exactly he is going to do or not do, obviously. It's too new to know," Ecclestone continued according to The Press Association.
"I hope he can do it. It's a completely different thing to what he has been doing at O2. But he's a commercial-minded guy, so I'm sure there will be no problems."
