You cannot talk about the European Sports scene and fail to mention one Gino Pozzo. He is the owner of Watford Football Club. Over the years, Pozzo has built a solid reputation when it comes to taking lackluster football clubs in the lower division to taking them to top flight football leagues irrespective of the country.
Born to football enthusiast parents, Gianpaolo and Giuliana Pozzo, Gino Pozzo grew up in Udine Italy. He managed to get links to Udinese football club courtesy of his mother. Since then, he has remained loyal to the club and his family maintains the same.
Gino joined Harvard University for his masters after moving to the United States. He later got married to Catalan and relocated to Spain where he spent the better part of his life in Barcelona. In 2013, he moved to London with his family. With this move, he would get the chance to be involved directly with the daily happenings at the club he had just bought at Vicarage Road.
The Pozzo family has been synonymous with football, and it is no surprise that Gino has taken up this niche seriously. This started way back when his father bought the Udinese club in 1986 after saving from his family’s tool business.
Apart from football, the family has also gotten involved in other business-like electrical appliance trading. This exemplifies the family’s strategy to diversify. Recently, the family has been reported to venture into mergers on finance and property. Gino has been quoted saying as much as he is in the football club ownership business, this is not their main business focus as this is only a passion he loves doing. He is more concerned about expanding his other business ventures and inspire the next generation to take up entrepreneurship to a whole new level.
