Upon retiring from playing, Harewood has focused on his business AC13 Premier which modifies luxury sports cars.
Setting up with a partner when he was playing at Aston Villa, the bulk of the company’s business come from footballers who require bespoke modifications made to their luxury vehicles.
With a client list which includes Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney and Jack Butland, his company equips cars with interior fit-outs, body styling kits, bespoke wheel colouring, privacy glass and vehicle wrapping.
The pair have since branched out into a ‘fixing’ business called AC13 Lifestyle where they arrange holidays, football match tickets and even bespoke suits for their high-profile clientele.
Harewood has also expressed an interest in managing one day and having completed his UEFA coaching badges currently coaches at the Nottingham Forest academy.
In 2018 Harewood was signed up by Playon as one of their ambassadors. Founded by former England international Viv Anderson Playon is a global network of sports professionals which provide ex-players with an opportunity to keep earning and maintaining their value in retirement.
The network also assists with some of the main issues ex-professionals are faced with when they retire from professional sports such as depression and anxiety.
He has recently started a new podcast with former West Ham team-mate Carlton Cole called the ‘Footballers Guide to Football‘.
