DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Upon graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in Sports Management, Josh accepted a position at the Phoenix Suns’ new business team. He focused on selling season tickets, group tickets, and premium hospitality for the NBA’s Phoenix Suns and WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury.
As an Account Executive, he was #1 in membership and new season ticket sales revenue. In June 2014, only two years from his first day of employment at the Suns, he was promoted to the Manager of the New Business Development program—one of the fastest leadership ascensions in the department’s history. He spent three seasons in that role recruiting, training, leading, and developing entry-level sales consultants.
During his tenure, Josh grew the sales staff from fourteen to nineteen members while helping more than forty people get promoted to senior-level positions within sports teams nationwide. Since his time with the Suns, Josh has spent the last three years partnering with several organizations in the sports business industry, focusing on sales training, leadership development, and talent management. He has worked with teams in the NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, NCAA, WNBA, NCAA, NASCAR, and the ECHL.
