bookacoach, an Elevate Ventures portfolio company that provides an online marketplace for sports training, today announced the appointment of Todd Sermersheim, Vice President of Sales for the Football Division of Relativity Sports, as recruitment lead for newly formed Sports Advisory Board.
The Sports Advisory Board will engage professional athletes and potential corporate sports partners for strategic guidance in areas from athlete development to sports coaching safety, while also counseling the bookacoach Board of Directors and management team on matters relating to the sports development market.
Todd Sermersheim, an Indianapolis native, will begin advising on sports related matters and lead the recruitment effort for the Advisory Board.
Todd currently serves as Relativity Sports Football’s Vice President of Sales, leading all football client endorsement sales efforts. Todd brings a depth of sports marketing and relationship building experience to the Sports Advisory Board. Prior to joining the Relativity Sports team, Todd oversaw the WWE sponsorship sales, served as head of business development for SME Branding and the National Lacrosse League, and started his sports business career as a sports marketing manager at Reebok.
“The sports industry has a vast community of elite and experienced professionals,” said Todd. "I'm excited to join and help shape this network for bookacoach, with the focus of delivering value to athletes, parents and coaches.”
“The knowledge and expertise of the Sports Advisory Board will give our team valuable insight into the sports coaching industry,” says Kevin MacCauley, Founder and CEO of bookacoach. “The addition of Todd’s experience is the beginning of a significant opportunity for our team, as we seek advisement on several key developments in our pursuit of long term market share.”
The recruitment process for the newly formed advisory board has already begun, and bookacoach expects to announce additional appointments later this year.
bookacoach, the destination for sports lessons, offers online tools that simplifies the booking, scheduling, and feedback aspects of sports instruction.
