Brent Schoeb, San Francisco 49ers
SponsorPitch Profile: Link
5 years at the professional sports level, handful of years spent with other sports teams.
How did you get started in it?
Passionate for professional sports and business. Back when I had a full head of hair I was “barnstorming” for the St. Cloud River Bats, a summer collegiate baseball team followed by stints in the MLB and NBA prior to landing with a NFL team.
How many deals have you done?
50+ fully integrated marketing partnerships between the San Francisco 49ers and Memphis Grizzlies with national and international brands.
What is your most effective sales tactic?
Building relationships and effectively matching brand objectives with creative marketing solutions (i.e. Grizzlies Grannies and Grandpas presented by AARP!).
How did you first hear about SponsorPitch?
Through a colleague in the sports industry.
Why did you join SponsorPitch?
It is on pace to become the pulse of the sports sponsorship world. Who doesn’t want to connect with counterparts in the sports sponsorship industry and have legitimate decision-makers at your fingertips?
If you could say anything about the industry, what would it be?
Stealing the Memphis Grizzlies motto, the industry loves to “Live, Work and Play as Champions.”
