Will Greenwood MBE is a former England rugby player who thrived at the position of centre.
Enjoying a career that spanned 11 years, Will represented both Harlequins and Leicester Tigers, two highly respected names at club level. He also excelled at international level for England, compiling 55 caps and proudly played a part in the historic 2003 World Cup victory over Australia. In addition, Greenwood also competed for the British & Irish Lions during multiple tours, displaying great leadership whilst performing on the grandest stage.
Following his retirement, Will established himself as a journalist, presenter and analyst for Sky Sports and The Telegraph. He is also a successful businessman, having set up Legend Holidays & Events, a company providing family holiday experiences and corporate events, and the Sports Fest family sporting festival. His transition into the world of business was aided by his academic acumen. Prior to the commencement of his playing career, Will graduated from Durham University with a degree in economics.
Aside from his sporting and business ventures, Will is a keen charity supporter, particularly of organisations that address premature birth and child bereavement. A patron of Child Bereavement UK, Will walked to the North Pole in 2018, in memory of his son Freddie and in the process, raised an astonishing £750,000 for Borne’s Research.
Will currently serves as Chief Customer Officer for the UK arm of Afiniti, a software company with the development of artificial intelligence at its core.
