Cover Letter May 1, 2013 Dear Ms. Lastik, As a hard working, organized, self motivated team player, with excellent communications skills and a passion for sports event marketing, it is exciting to have an opportunity to leverage my related education and work experience as the Marketing and Event Manager of the Central Florida Sports Commission. I am a driven young professional with a proven track record of executing the marketing and management of high volume sports and entertainment events. My growing knowledge of the industry, as a coordinator and liaison of several projects, has offered me opportunities to gain familiarity organizing the efforts of overall business plans. In one of my most recent experiences I was tasked with coordinating events surrounding the weekend of the Florida Classic, Russell Athletic Bowl, and Capital One Bowl; all huge revenue drivers to the Orlando community. Working at Florida Citrus Sports gave me the opportunity to establish relationships, conduct logistics, and host events at facilities such as the Citrus Bowl Stadium, Amway Center, Tinker Field, and major hotels throughout the city. I did an outstanding job managing several projects and was recognized for my effort by the NCAA Fan Engagement and Compliance Audit Report for implementing the best practices observed at an event. My background is inclusive of, but not limited to:
Generating partnerships to leverage relationships and derive new business Developing concepts that increase revenue and support event opportunities Conducting on site supervision of events Implementing direct marketing strategy to promote events & drive sales Maintaining event budgets and contractual agreements Efficiently prioritizing multiple projects to meet and exceed assigned goals Benchmarking events to maximize ROI and build for the future.
I am confident that my experience, interpersonal skills, and dedication will permit me to add value to your organization. I look forward to the opportunity of an interview and discussing the possibility of continuing growth and innovation with the Central Florida Sports Commission. Please find my resume and cover letter attached. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Brandon Anthony
