Tony established many industry firsts working with top brands in corporate America selling to senior-level marketing and sales executives. A real industry pro at B2B selling, setting appointments, and renewing business, he has sold millions of dollars of media and led clients to digital transformation through consumer interactions around sports. During his tenure, Athlon Sports’ revenue grew 1,000%.
Tony grew up in sales. He gained five years of experience selling and recruiting for Southwestern Advantage while in school at the University of Michigan and while earning his MBA from Syracuse University. He was accepted into the Toyota management training program and subsequently served as a district manager in Boston. He then began a long and successful career as a top producer with Athlon Sports Communications, where he retired as Partner/VP of Sales.
Tony has checked many items off his bucket list, but his family and faith are his two best achievements. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, two children, and their rescue dog, Sadie.
