ONE Championship has poached a vice president from the NBA. Meghan Jenkins spent over a decade working in the basketball industry but will now be switching her focus to martial arts.
Jenkins spent over seven years at the NBA’s global headquarters in New York, focused on corporate strategy, international expansion, strategic partnerships and investments. She was part of the initial team responsible for the growth and management of NBA China.
“It is an absolute honor to announce that Meghan Jenkins has joined our senior leadership team here at ONE Championship as Vice President International,” ONE Championship Chairman / CEO Chatri Sityodtong said. “As a seasoned leader, Meghan will work alongside myself and the rest of our leadership team to help scale ONE Championship into the first multibillion dollar global sports media property in Asian history.”
“She will oversee ONE Championship’s growth internationally, including new markets and TAM expansion as well as strategic initiatives across our existing markets. With the addition of Meghan, ONE Championship now has the most seasoned and experienced world-class leadership team in the entire Asian sports media industry today.”
Next up for the Asian MMA promotion is ONE: “Clash of Legends” on February 16th in Bangkok, followed by ONE: “Call to Greatness” the following week.
