Glenn Horine has joined SRiCheyenne as a Partner in order to focus on developing the North American sports practice. SRiCheyenne are a global executive search and consulting boutique, created in January 2017 following the merger of the US-based media and content recruitment experts Cheyenne Group and UK-headquartered SRi (formerly Sports Recruitment International).
