Michael Hansen joined as a partner at people in sport on 1 January 2008, and sits as the lead for PINS Handball, where he is also the agent for many women’s and men players.
Michael is a trained accountant and he has worked as a financial director and has also been a computer consultant. He has always worked with handball, first as a player at Skjern Handball, and later at VRI. He suffered a back injury and chose to be a handball coach, where he coached both men and women in Aarhus and Viborg. From 2003-08, Michael worked as Director of Sport at Viborg HK. During that period, Viborg HK achieved eight gold medals, including the coveted Champions League trophy.
As a player, Michael was focused on handball being a fun game with speed and endless opportunities to develop oneself and the team. As a coach, Michael was motivated to get a group of different people to work together through efficient handball, as well as achieving the goals. Furthermore, as Director of Sport, Michael was motivated to develop and optimise the sporting strategy and create a unique team based on the club’s vision, mission and values. In addition to a large network in Danish and international handball, Michael’s strength is a broad knowledge of handball combined with knowledge of tax and finance.
Michael’s philosophy is that you can easily achieve your goals if you are focused, work hard and are in good spirits. Be humble and persistent. Give others a smile, you will get one back.
