Driven by a desire to “do good and do well,” Neill is an advocate for purpose as the preferred business philosophy of the 21st Century. 


Neill’s relentless commitment to leveraging purpose as a central organizing principle has enabled global brands, international sports properties and high-performing non-profits to realize greater economic, social and environmental impacts alongside financial returns.

His work has repeatedly established new benchmarks - including a number of world firsts - such as the delivery of Super Bowl 50 as the “most shared, participatory, giving and sustainable Super Bowl in history” and the 34th America’s Cup as the first zero waste and carbon neutral major international sports event. 

Neill has worked across three continents where he has held numerous leadership positions including President Octagon EMEA, CEO of Octagon South Africa, Chair of the Sustainability Committee for Super Bowl 50, Chief Marketing & Sustainability Officer for 34th America’s Cup, and Chief Catalyst at One World Play Project.
