A-League Adds Ulm as Vice President of Business
ESTERO, FL - A-League Football has announced the hiring of Chris Ulm as Vice President of Business. He begins his new position January 2nd.
"I'm excited to have Chris join our organization, and I look forward to working with him in establishing, and building relationships in each market", commented A-League President of Business Andrew Haines.
Chis Ulm comes to A-League Sports after spending the last 20 years in Indiana, where he helped build the Ball State Sports Properties brand through various multi-media rights holders (Learfield, Play By Play Sports, Nelligan Sports Marketing) as well as Ball State University.
"I am thrilled to be joining A-League Football! My entire career has focused on partnerships and I look forward to continuing that tradition with the opportunity to work with many of Central and Southwest Florida’s industry leaders", added Chris Ulm.
Rising through the ranks from student intern to general manager of the property, Ulm helped contribute to a 1500% increase in Ball State University Athletics corporate sales through a great base of corporate partners and utilizing traditional and non-traditional means to acquire multi-year agreements for the department. The formation of the “Team Ball State” program helped establish cornerstone partnerships for the department to elevate brand awareness for all involved. Ulm enjoys developing unique opportunities for potential supporters not to sell sponsorships, but to build partnerships.
