Alex Danson MBE

Olympian and Firm ambassador

alex.danson@shma.co.uk

As part of our partnership with Commonwealth Games England, we’re delighted that Olympic gold medallist Alex Danson is our firm ambassador.

Alex is a member of the England and Great Britain’s hockey team, making her first international debut at just 16. After winning bronze at London 2012, Alex was the top scorer of the gold winning Rio 2016 team.

Through her role as firm ambassador Alex will work with the firm to inspire and motivate its clients and employees and teach them how to apply the same sporting principles that took her and her teammates to gold medal winning status, to achieve their own sporting or professional successes.

"We’re delighted to be at the beginning of a partnership between two teams who share the same winning spirit and focus on supporting talent to achieve their potential. Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."
