Karl Budge oversaw the ASB Classic from 2012, building it into one of the best on the pro circuit and bringing some of the greatest athletes in the world to New Zealand. 

During his career he’s held senior roles for some of the world’s highest profile rights holders and brands. 

And has just been announced as event director of the much-anticipated SailGP series, with the NZ Grand Prix being held in Christchurch next year.  

He was Simon Barnett and Phil Gifford's guest for this week's Six and a Song.
