About Chris and Eoin

Chris Turner – CEO of Sports Wellbeing & Analytics (SWA)

Co-Founder and CEO of SWA since 2017 – previously Global CTO with Unilever 10 years, Executive Vice President SAP for 5 years. Role is to oversee and manage all aspects of SWA’s business and operations. The business is fundamentally a real time data business with a data collection tool currently in the form of a highly validated electronic mouthguard. You can think of us as a GPS for contact. The data which is reported live allows us to provide real insight to clubs and athletes as to what is going on. This understanding and combination of data is our strength as a business and as we work with different sports, the uses for and the value of the data just keeps growing. Clearly in rugby, we want to see all clubs follow the lead and belief that Gloucester has shown and adopt the system for the benefit of themselves and their players. But we also want to see this across all contact sports over time.
