I am a sports and entertainment marketing and sales executive with 25 years' experience in strategic sales, business development, sports marketing, brand management, partnership management, and account management with Major League Baseball International, Starter Corporation, USA Volleyball and NASCAR.
I have an MBA in Marketing and International Business from Northeastern University and a BA in History from Davidson College. At Davidson, I was the MVP of our Division 1 college baseball team hitting .380 my senior year.
Over the last 10 years at NASCAR, I have sold and managed over $52 million in corporate sponsorships, digital media and entertainment products and sold over $5 million in TV commercial production. Some of my Fortune 500 clients included 3M, Bank of America, Chevrolet, Coca-Cola, Lowe’s, Miller Coors, Mars Inc., Nationwide Insurance, Outback Steakhouse, Sprint, Sunoco, UPS, and Waste Management, Inc. among others.
I have a demonstrated capacity to develop, create and implement revenue generating partnership solutions for corporations through mutually beneficial deal-making, a robust rolodex of Fortune 500 brand relationships and an innate gift of relationship-building to generate millions of dollars in sponsorship sales.
Ultimately, I have the experience, relationships, and skill set to direct, manage and grow the corporate sponsorship business as a critical member of the senior management team at a growing organization.
