By creating innovative game day marketing opportunities for both local and national advertisers, the company has attracted a diverse client list, and is poised to expand significantly in the coming months and years. With an impressive team led by Barrett Davie and an unparalleled Board of Directors and Advisors for a company at this stage, I sense the years ahead will provide significant opportunity for all involved, and I look forward to leading the InStadium sales teams in their continuing effort to expand their network and build their business.”
