Liam Fayle

Director of Business Development

Liam found the sport of running at age 12 and was a high school freshman when he watched Meb Keflezighi win a Silver Medal at the 2004 Olympic Games.

Years later, after beginning his career working on multimillion dollar transactions in commercial equipment leasing, Liam pointed his skills in the direction of his true passion. He set out for Los Angeles and created a lecture series for runners called ProRunnerTalk.  The series spanned 8 states and featured some of track & field’s most decorated stars.

Through diligent networking, Liam built relationships with many of the top agents in track & field and was honored with an invitation to join the HAWI Management team in 2016.
