Managing Director, Partnership Sales – Pocono Raceway (COMPLETED)

Pocono Raceway (formerly Pocono International Raceway) also known as the Tricky Triangle, is a superspeedway located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania at Long Pond. It is the site of two annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races held just weeks apart in June and August, and one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event in August. Since 2013, the track is also host to a Verizon IndyCar Series race.

Pocono is one of a very few NASCAR tracks not owned by either Speedway Motorsports, Inc. or International Speedway Corporation, the dominant track owners in NASCAR. It is run by the Igdalsky siblings Nicholas, sister Ashley, and cousins Joseph IV and Chase Mattioli, all of whom are third-generation members of the family-owned Mattco Inc, started by Joseph II and Rose Mattioli. Mattco also owns South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Virginia.

Outside of the NASCAR races, Pocono is used throughout the year by Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and motorcycle clubs as well as racing schools. The triangular oval also has three separate infield sections of racetrack – North Course, East Course and South Course. Each of these infield sections use a separate portion of the tri-oval to complete the track. During regular non-race weekends, multiple clubs can use the track by running on different infield sections. Also some of the infield sections can be run in either direction, or multiple infield sections can be put together – such as running the North Course and the South Course and using the tri-oval to connect the two.

Implementation Specialist – SeatGeek (COMPLETED)

Launched in 2009, SeatGeek experienced steady growth until 2014 when things really began to heat up. SeatGeek’s mobile app became the go-to for fans looking to book entertainment on their phones. While incumbent players like StubHub have yet to “figure out mobile”, SeatGeek’s app is already converting better than desktop. After operating on the outside of the sports industry for so long, it’s time for SeatGeek to start making inroads.

Here at SeatGeek, we’ve spent the last eight years building the best app for consumers to buy sports, concert, and theater tickets. Millions of consumers have used SeatGeek to book event tickets, and we’re quickly becoming a mainstream consumer brand. Fans love our focus on user experience: our maps, discovery features, and deal score algorithm make us a wholly different experience than what fans are accustomed to on legacy ticketing sites.

SeatGeek Open is that future – thanks in large part to groundbreaking partnership with Major League Soccer and our recent acquisition of TopTix – we are now ticketing teams in 2017. We have the best backend and consumer-facing technology on the market and a business model that appeals to fans and teams alike. Read More
