As Director of Strategy, Warty will be responsible for strengthening and driving World Rugbyís approach to global game growth and project execution, including the development of a new strategic plan, which will provide the blueprint for a strengthened, growing and innovating sport.

Warty brings with him a wealth of proven strategy development experience from similar roles with Sport England, BBC Sport, the Centre for Economics & Business Research Ltd, Arthur Andersen and more latterly MullenLowe Group.

World Rugby Chief Executive Brett Gosper said, "Mihir joins with exceptional credentials. As Head of Strategy for the BBC and BBC Sport, he injected a data-driven approach to the broadcasterís multi-media approach to build new audiences and applied the same successful approach with Sport England, attracting 700,000 new participants during a time of unparalleled success for English athletes and teams. Mihir will provide disciplined and imaginative thinking that will enable World Rugby to optimise its development in key areas as well as the development of a new strategic plan that will propel the sport into the next decade."

Warty said, "I am thrilled to be joining World Rugby at this time in its journey, and looking forward to building on my experience in sports broadcasting and development at one of the worldís leading international sport federations."
