Key Personnel

Keith Gilbert - CEO
Before establishing Premier Coaching International, Keith had a successful career in business, primarily in the financial services sector, holding various senior management positions and directorships. In 2001 he set up an international distribution company specialising in property investment funds and by 2007 the company had operations throughout the UK, Europe, the Far East, Africa and the Middle East.

He has left the financial services industry to concentrate fully on establishing Premier Coaching International as a leading company in the area of youth soccer with the aim of offering a wide range of soccer related programmes and services primarily in the US but also in other regions worldwide.

Keith has a keen interest in soccer and has managed sides at junior, colts and youth level during which time he has established connections with a number of leading figures at various levels in the game which, in turn, led to the formation of Premier Coaching International.
