In the 2023-24 academic year, I joined the faculty as an instructor in Sports Management. Prior to coming back to my alma mater, I was an Adjunct Professor at Loyola University Chicago Quinlan School of Business Sport Management. Currently, I serve as a Business Incubator Mentor and Assistant Boys Basketball Coach at Lake Forest High School.
Previously to my teaching and coaching career, I served as the Senior Director of Premium Seating Sales and Services for the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Blackhawks, and United Center for 37 years. This time in professional sports fortunately has brought me a wealth of experience in development of revenue streams, sales, marketing, business development, strategic planning and management, customer service, operations, and hospitality in professional sports. During my tenure at the United Center, our team was credited for a variety of innovative premium seating products including the all-inclusive Theater Boxes. Along with other front office personnel, I was awarded six World Champion NBA rings and three NHL Stanley Cup championships.
During my professional sports career, I served on the Bulls, Blackhawks, and United Center executive COVID, technology, marketing, operations, and ownership committees. I also served as the President and board member of the Association of Luxury Suite Directors and Ohio University Sports Management School.
Academically, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Education from Beloit College in 1986 where I served on Beloit’s Education Department Faculty Board and was awarded the Outstanding Education Student Scholarship. I was a Trustee of the Beloit College Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and also served as a member of the Beloit College President’s Advisory Board. In 2023, I received certification in the Experiential Entrepreneurship Educator Program at Notre Dame University.
