Interview with Ronan Baynes – Corporate Sponsorship & New Business Development San Francisco Giants http://sportsexec.net/interview-with-ronan-baynes-corporate-sponsorship-new-business-development-san-francisco-giants/ http://sportsexec.net/interview-with-ronan-baynes-corporate-sponsorship-new-business-development-san-francisco-giants/#comments Wed, 05 Mar 2014 19:20:11 +0000 Alex Feczko http://sportsexec.net/?p=4267 In a recent interview with Ronan Baynes, the Corporate Sponsorship Sales Coordinator for the San Francisco Giants he discussed his background in the sports industry and how he got to his current role. Ronan previously worked with the Oakland Raiders as Manager of Corporate Partnerships and Client Services before recently accepting a new position with the San Francisco Giants. Here are the questions below.

1. At what point did you decide to pursue a career in the Sports Industry, and how did you get your start?

Ronan Baynes New

Sports have always been a passion of mine. From an early age I always played, watched, and read sports any opportunity I got. However, it wasn’t until my freshman year of college that entering the sport industry as a professional seemed like a real possibility. I was lucky enough to obtain an internship with CBS College Sports working on campus to promote both the CBS College Sports Network as well as their new partnership with Powerade. This opened my eyes to the various possibilities within the industry and allowed me to seek further internship/volunteer opportunities in the sports world.

2. How did your experience at Boston College for undergrad and the University of San Francisco for your Masters help you prepare for a career in sports and the business world?

While at Boston College I was able to take advantage of being part of a reputable athletic department. There were constant opportunities to assist both the marketing and media relations departments. This gave me great insight into the behind the scenes activities that occur on game days. It also prepared me for the level of work that is continually expected of you in sports.

The University of San Francisco does a phenomenal job of hiring professors with real industry experience. My marketing professor worked on a campaign for the 2002 World Cup and my accounting professor was the CFO of the San Jose Sharks just to name some examples. Not only were they teaching us about their various roles within the industry, but they had real world experiences to share. It added significant value to my experience as a graduate student.

3. What did you do in your previous role as Manager of Client Services and Coporate Partnerships for the Oakland Raiders?

With the Oakland Raiders I was in charge of 17 corporate accounts. Once our sales executives bring aboard a new partner, I ensure that they receive all of their deliverables and that their contract is fully executed. This requires continual contact with our clients to assure all of their marketing needs are being met.

Also, I worked closely with the sales executives and assist them in building various proposals and packages, as well as collaborate on ideas for potential new partners. Although sponsorship departments consist of a sales element as well as a fulfillment element, everyone within the department is required to work closely together to offer our partners the most success.

4. What was your favorite part of working for an NFL team and also your least favorite?

The NFL is a very powerful brand. Many potential sponsors understand that aligning their brand with an NFL team can provide significant value.

5. What advice would you give to someone who is aspiring to work in the Sports Industry?

I would first tell them to try as many new things as possible. There are so many internships and volunteer opportunities available that can help steer one’s interests.

Then I would tell them to network as much as possible. Reach out to current sport industry professionals and ask them if they would be available for a short informational interview. This gives you the opportunity to hear first-hand what it is like to work in the industry. What do many of these jobs require? What kinds of hours are you expected to work? What path did you take the get to where you are today? Conducting informational interviews not only gives you a tremendous insight into the day-to-day responsibilities of many of these professionals, but it allows you to begin building a network for yourself.

Interview with Alex Kline – Founder of The Recruit Scoop – Forbes 30 under 30 http://sportsexec.net/interview-with-alex-kline-founder-of-the-recruit-scoop-forbes-30-under-30/ http://sportsexec.net/interview-with-alex-kline-founder-of-the-recruit-scoop-forbes-30-under-30/#comments Fri, 03 Jan 2014 22:49:21 +0000 Alex Feczko http://sportsexec.net/?p=4174 I had the chance to interview Alex Kline, the Founder of The Recruit Scoop. Alex is a 19-year old student at Syracuse University who works double as a student and College Basketball Recruiting Analyst. At age 15 he founded The Recruit Scoop, an exposure platform giving high school basketball players exposure to college coaches and fans around the world. Also, Alex runs the  Mary Kline Classic which is a charity high school basketball all-star event in the spring which raises money for cancer research.

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 5.17.47 PM

1. At age 15 you started The Recruit Scoop, a college basketball recruiting website providing the latest information on recruiting information.  What was your inspiration and how did you go about starting the website?

My inspiration was telling the interesting stories behind the future of basketball. There are so many different kids playing, and so many different stories to tell outside of their recruitment, how they played on the court, and what the common person knows about them. To me, their lives are so interesting so to have the opportunity to explore that about them, as well as going in-depth about their recruitment, was very rewarding to me. I started the website after some success as a freelance journalist, as well as after co-creating a pop culture site that gave me a little inspiration to get into the basketball field.

2. How did you gain an edge on gathering recruiting information on other recruiting analysts at such a young age?
 
Most kids I was interviewing were my age so they didn’t feel threatened. Recruiting news and Q&A sessions were second nature and filled with no pressure. They knew what I was doing, but it was relaxing and friendly; never overwhelming. Coaches were different because most were older. They could relate to me like they related to their players, but I had to build my brand up in order for them to take me seriously. After a while I showed reputability, responsibility, accuracy and a caring, genuine nature with recruits and coaches of all levels,ages and skin colors.                                                         
Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 4.54.15 PM
3. As a student at Syracuse University, how do you balance all of the college basketball recruiting information on top of regular student academics?
Since I’ve been doing this for so long now, it is second nature. Time management and not procrastinating is the name of the game, and it is an important asset to have in life. You have to set your priorities, but also maintain them day in and day out. Luckily, I happened to be doing something I was passionate about so it was, and still is, very easy for me.

4. This will be the 4th year of the Mary Kline Classic, which is a charity high school basketball all-star event put on in honor of the late Mary Kline. What does this event mean to you, and how do you go about organizing it throughout the year?
 
The Mary Kline Classic is my Super Bowl. It means the world to me and is the best day, as well as the most stressful day, of the year for me. I run all aspects of it from promotion to sponsorships to raising money to recruiting players to organizational parts. The people who have come on board and helped me in various aspects have done a great job, as well. I have so much fun running this event and helping to raise people’s awareness of cancer research is very important for me. Getting great players is also important just because as a world we love to follow trends and important people. By having the future of basketball behind this, it inspires everyone to want to be a part of it. Saturday, May 31st at 6pm at West Orange High School in New Jersey will be a memorable day.
5. With so much experience in College basketball recruiting, do you have a dream job for the future?
My idea of a dream job seems to switch every day but I have always thought about heading in Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 7.09.18 PMseveral directions. Becoming an NBA Scout, Director of Player Personnel or General Manager would be exciting. I’m not sure if I want to stay in the media, but if I had a Robin Roberts-type role then I think that would be fulfilling. I want to change lives and be versatile when it comes to doing so. There are so many options and opportunities in the near future as I’m only 19.
