Rob Sine has been named President of IMG Learfield Ticket Solutions, the collegiate leader in outbound ticket sales currently serving 38 schools across the nation.
Rob comes to us from the Pac-12 Conference & Pac-12 Sales, where as VP/Ticketing he built and led the conference’s department focused on ticketing, marketing and revenue-generation for its members. Prior to joining the Pac-12 in 2012, he founded and served as President for Hands On Sports, which provided ticket and sponsorship sales services to professional and collegiate clients. He also has ticket sales management experience working for the Portland Trailblazers, Seattle Sonics, and Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA.
“Rob brings to us a strong combination of professional and collegiate sports ticket sales experience,” said Mark Dyer, SVP/Business Ventures at IMG College. “He understands how to harness business intelligence in critical areas like database management and lead generation, which will benefit our organization and our school partners.”
Sine and the IMGLTS team will build on some impressive recent results:
- Sold nearly $80 million worth of tickets for its school partners last year
- Raised an additional $9 million in donations across its properties
- In the 2015 NCAA college basketball season, represented the two schools (North Carolina State and Auburn University) with the largest average men’s basketball attendance increases as well as seven schools in the top 20.
With these results, universities extending their ticketing partnerships in 2015 include Oklahoma, North Carolina State, Colorado, Temple, Pittsburgh, Penn State, Richmond, and UTSA. New partnerships were also created with the NCAA and the Alamo Bowl.
