Daniel Levy’s Biography

Daniel Levy is a highly renowned businessman and chairman of Premier League outfit, Tottenham Hotspur.

Daniel was appointed at Spurs in 2001, at the age of 38, making him the league's youngest chairman at the time. He has gone on to enjoy a pivotal twenty-year association with the North London club, orchestrating Tottenham's move to a new, state-of-the-art stadium in 2019, and transforming Spurs into a global brand.

He also oversaw the club's transition to a new, fully-equipped training ground in 2012. Under his leadership, Tottenham secured their first trophy in nine years, defeating Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup Final, and have regularly qualified to compete in Europe's premier club competition, the UEFA Champions League; reaching the final in 2019.

A widely-heralded negotiator, Daniel is credited with masterminding several lucrative corporate partnership and sponsorship deals, including multi-million pound contracts with Fortune 500 companies such as AIA, Nike, HSBC and HPE. He is heavily involved in player transfer negotiations and, in 2013, secured a then world-record fee of £86 million for the sale of Welsh forward, Gareth Bale, to Real Madrid.

Daniel has also gained plaudits as a purveyor of sustainability, ensuring the club lives within its means, and is regularly involved in promoting governing issues related to the Premier League, including those related to the long-term sustainability of its clubs.

In addition to his standing at Spurs, Daniel serves as Managing Director at ENIC Group, a British company conducting its business in the sports, media, and entertainment space. From this position he acquired a substantial stake in his boyhood club, Tottenham.

Daniel is passionate about utilising Spurs’ breathtaking new stadium as a spark in the regeneration of the North Tottenham locality and is a firm charity advocate, arranging for a proportion of player fines to be donated to NHS hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
