Alan Moore was born in Dublin in 1973 and has a strong background in sports from amateur to professional. An active sportsman from an early age he represented Ireland in boxing, winning a record number of University Boxing Championships and competing around Europe and North America, as well as playing and coaching senior soccer in a number of countries. His first love is the ancient sport of hurling and in 2002 Alan won a Louth Senior League medal with Naomh Moninne HC of Dundalk. He enjoyed a short spell as manager of the Louth Minor and under-16 county teams in 2001 and Under-15 team in 2003.
Having graduated from University College Dublin in 1996 he traveled to Canada to take up a player-coach role at a regional club, trialing in 1997 with Hershey Wildcats, Montreal Impact and Bristol Rovers. In 1997 he returned to Europe and while working on an M.A. thesis in NUI Maynooth he boxed and worked in Germany. In 1997 he founded the NUI Maynooth Boxing Club which became one of the most successful in Ireland, winning the AIB Sports Club of the Year Award in 1999, while more importantly Alan made history by organising the first female amateur boxing match in Ireland in October 1998, which forced the IABA to review and finally lift its ban on female boxers soon after. In Germany he began working closely with sports clubs, as well as boxing.
Following a 2 year teaching and coaching stint in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (2001-3) saw him based in Croatia to work with sports (soccer and rugby) where he founded a rugby club in the city of Knin. As well as the success in bringing a new, non-sectarian club to Croatia and raising the positive media profile of Knin, Alan played for the Irish Barbarians XV against the Croatian National Team on March 17th, 2007, when over 2,500 people attended the first rugby International in the city, which was the leading headline in the Croatian media that day. In 2009 Alan took a year out to work as International Development Officer for Floriana FC of the Maltese Premier League. Alan has worked with Croatian superclub HNK Hajduk Split and other sports clubs around Europe since 2003. Notable work has seen Alan develop Russian tennis player, Marta Sirotkina, from dropping out of the top-400 to top 220 in less than a year, and to turn around the fortunes of Vitalia Diatchenko from a 5-12 record to 16-4 and qualifying for Wimbledon and the US Open.
Alan covers the day-to-day operations of HIS Management, with his experience in individual, club and project management within the sports world he has built up a strong network of contacts.
