Evan Gitomer hails from the “mean streets” of Philly, so he says with a laugh. He went to school in Miami, Florida, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and lived in Phoenix, New Orleans, and the East Village of New York City prior to arriving in Kansas City. RiverKey was delighted to welcome him aboard on January 11th of this year as our new director of sales.
He’s definitely a “sports guy.” Evan has spent a lot of time in the industry in sales and marketing positions: ticket sales, suite sales, and premium sales. He started his career with the Philadelphia Eagles as a “glorified intern,” then spent time in various sales and marketing roles within the organization. After that, he worked with the New Orleans Saints, the Phoenix Coyotes, the Brooklyn Nets, and finally, Sporting Kansas City.
“I’m excited to bring my experience and knowledge of the professional sports industry to an innovative company like RiverKey Creative,” says Evan. “They’re experts at creating the coolest in-stadium interactive content I’ve seen. I look forward to pairing them with many teams who have faced the same challenges I’ve had in the past, making sure their fans are having an incredible time regardless of the what the scoreboard says.”
“First and foremost, my job here at RiverKey,” he explains, “is to help create and foster relationships with our clients—to help them accomplish their goals—and in doing so, I will additionally drive revenue for our own company to be successful.”
When asked what his dream project would be, Evan lights up with a smile
“I want to make the Baseball Hall of Fame the most interactive place on the earth,” he says. “As a kid, I used to go to Cooperstown all the time with my family, and I would really love to be a part of that reimagining.”
