Tom Veit is one of the largest turn-around artists in sports business. He's worked in MLS, XFL, college athletics, WWE and motor sports, creating revenue generation solutions for operations that were failing to deliver. Veit shares his experiences working in different environments, including some of the misnomers about scheduling/booking for World Wrestling Entertainment, as well as what hurt the XFL overall. Veit has a driving passion to building long-term revenue for an operation, but doesn't always see the employees as the problem, sometimes its the system that isn't in place properly.
"Mr. Premium" Jason Gonella talks about one of the highest revenue portions of sports sales; luxury suites and seats, as well as how to build a clientele for that space long term. Gonella returns to the podcast to share his wisdom on what actually makes a luxury space viable, as well as the issue of whether there may be too much premium inventory going on sale at once, and whether that can burst the bubble of luxury seating sales. As suites transition into loge boxes or club seating, Gonella discusses the issues around those types of philosophical and real world changes to the entire sports sales space. Twitter: @JasonGonella
