Rina is Digital Content Manager at basketball's international governing body based in Switzerland. His story starts in Grenoble in the south of France before moving to Paris to kick start his basketball career.

He gives some great pointers as to how his varied career at the start with video production, radio show/podcasting and digital helping in landing his dream role as a basketball fan.

We also spoke about his role in bringing a quite complicated social media landscape together in 2013, when they had multi region and event accounts scattered around the world. Now they are centralised and much more coordinated.

In 2016 FIBA live streamed for free 97 days worth of games, mostly at youth level. Helping serve fans the content that wasn't available on traditional broadcast channels. He provides insight into why they took this approach and how it will provide value going forward.
