After joining the FAU in 2000, Riordan spent the rest of his life as part of the Owl family as people will remember his impact in sports management.

James Riordan, Director of the Sports Management MBA Program at FAU is dead earlier this March. Riordan established the program in 2000 at a time of skepticism surrounding the industry.

“Jim was fantastic, he built the program from scratch, it was his vision that he built this program,” said Associate Dean of Graduate Programs Ken Johnson. “People didn’t think it was a professional field maybe 20, 30 years ago, Jim saw things that were going to happen before anyone else.”

Johnson said that without Riordan, the sports management program would not have lasted at FAU. For him, the impact Riordan had on the university will live on for generations to come.

For those who have worked with Riordan, they will remember him for his passion for the industry. His work ethic has been an inspiration to students and faculty in the postgraduate program.

“Creating this program and nurturing students interested in management in the sports industry was quite difficult, it became easy when he did it,” said Sofia Johan, associate professor in the finance department. “There aren’t many people who can bridge that gap between program management and community outreach. He was determined to bring his students out of the world.

In 2021, the program was ranked #19 on the 1 Best Postgraduate Sports Management Degrees in the World. The success of the program is attributed to a long list of old students who have landed important jobs within the industry.

Several students influenced by Riordan are currently employed by sports organizations such as the Miami Heat, Florida Panthers, and Dallas Cowboys. While others have found success in sports media companies like NFL Network, CBS Sports and ESPN.

“The time spent at Florida Atlantic is what I consider the foundation of my career,” said Derek Volner, ESPN communications director and graduate of FAU’s sports management program.

“The professors and lecturers we had at that time, hearing their expertise and the opportunities, shaped the way you thought about your own career and journey.”

Riordan has gone the extra mile to ensure that its students pass the program. His students left his classes feeling like they had learned the real-life skills needed to navigate the business world.

“Everyone who went through the program had a desire to succeed, it helped give people vision and opportunity,” Volner said. “Whether it was simple things like attendance or more advanced skills like projects, he knew what he needed to instill in us even though at the time we had no idea what he was doing. .”

Prior to working for the FAU, Riordan built up an impressive resume, holding numerous positions in the sports industry. He began his career in 1980 working for the West Side Tennis Club and the National Tennis Center in New York.

He served as director of security for the Philadelphia Flyers, the youngest person to hold such a position at 21. Riordan also worked for Spectator Management Group in the early 1990s, as well as a brief stint with the New York Mets organization.

Riordan was director of the Master of Science in Sports Administration program at Canisius College from 1995 to 1999. After joining FAU in 2000, Riordan spent the rest of his life as a member of the Owl family and will always be a member. .

Riordan was 61 at the time of his death. His legacy will live on through the many lives he touched as part of the sports management program.

Among the winners were Claire Latimer ’22, who received the Major of the Year award, and Brynja Burton ’25, who won the Rising Phoenix Award.

After the Athletic Management Department Banquet on May 2, Class of 2022 members and faculty gather for a photo on the balcony of the Alumni Field House.

The Sports Management Department hosted its Senior Banquet and Awards Ceremony on May 2, recognizing the top performing members of its class for their achievements, service and perseverance.

Assistant Professor Shaina Dabbs (left) presented Claire Latimer ’22 with the Major of the Year award at the banquet.

The annual event kicked off at the Alumni Field House with a dinner followed by remarks from senior alumni Chuck Steines and Ashley Stuart, as well as Associate Dean Tony Weaver. A theme developed through the trio’s comments, underscoring the department’s willingness to support each other – especially in the face of a pandemic.

Photos of the banquet are available on the School of Communications’ Flickr page.

In their informal talks, Steines explained how close he had grown to his classmates and that he would be there to talk as they faced uncertainty together in the next stage of their lives. Stuart, who landed a job as a ticket sales representative with the Memphis Grizzlies after graduation, thanked her faculty members for their unwavering support. Finally, Weaver offered a reflection on the students’ four years under the oaks and how they endured and succeeded in the many challenges they faced.

Cedar Zobel-Williams ’24 (left) was one of two scholarship recipients this year. Cara Lucia, Associate Professor and Department Chair, presented the honor.

“When the going gets tough, the best step forward,” Weaver said, imploring future graduates to adopt this strategy in their professional and personal lives. “Everyone is happy and excited when you win. The hardest part is when things don’t go so well.

He encouraged students entering the job market to take nothing for granted and to seize opportunities when they arise.

Following Weaver’s remarks, the department presented several awards, including its Major of the Year award to Claire Latimer, who achieves a GPA of 3.8 and several undergraduate research projects to her credit, including a presentation at the AEJMC South-East colloquium 2021.

Kylee Hebert ’22, who also conducted undergraduate research, received the Achievement Award, Brynja Burton ’25 won the Rising Phoenix Award, and Cedar Zobel-Williams ’24 and Brett Bailey ’23 were awarded scholarships of studies. During his presentation of the scholarship, Assistant Professor Mark Cryan praised recently retired faculty member Hal Walker for his extensive efforts to fund – and ultimately endow – the scholarships to support future sports management majors. .

Olivia Lovell ’23 also received the James P. Drummond Service Award, named for the founding department manager of Leisure and Sport Management (later renamed Sport Management). The award is given to a student in recognition of outstanding contributions to Elon University and the campus community.

The event was hosted by Latimer and Taylor from Castro ’22.

When Formula 1 World Motorsports Championship drivers first speed through Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on May 8, they will have behind-the-scenes support from members of the BW Sports Management Program.

A group of sports management majors with qualifying academic records and sufficient prior event experience will take to the track to gain hands-on work experience and provide logistical support to US Formula 1 hotel partners during of the first Miami Grand Prix.

Such trips are not new to the program; BW sent a delegation to the last Formula 1 race in the United States at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, and has sent several other major sporting events across the country each year, including the Super Bowl, and will have students who will work at this year’s Kentucky Derby. .

“We were looking for additional opportunities because we had made the Super Bowl, this will be our 10th year, we made the college football playoffs,” said Charles Campisi, associate professor and chair of the sports marketing and management program at BW. . “But not everyone is a football fan, are they? And we want to provide students with different experiences.

While Formula 1 has been racing in the United States for over a century, the Miami Grand Prix is ​​a new entry in the series calendar. The first new US race introduced since 1989, the race will be held at the new Miami International Autodrome, a temporary track specifically designed for Formula 1 racing and built around Hard Rock Stadium, home of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins.

Campisi said the novelty of the event presents a challenge for the students, who, unlike those who work at the Super Bowl, have no precedent for their responsibilities in the event. Another difficulty has to do with the timing of the event: the race is scheduled for Mother’s Day, which is the day after the Kentucky Derby, where the BW students will also have a group stationed.

“We’re going to have troops divided,” Campisi said of the busy weekend. “It will be interesting, but hopefully we can get at least a few people over there to take care of it.”

Campisi said that while experiential learning trips like these happen at other schools, “probably none do as much as we do.” These opportunities allow BW to separate itself from sports management programs at much larger schools like Ohio State University or the University of Alabama, he said.

“It’s obviously a great recruiting tool,” Campisi said. “When you’re talking to potential freshmen…and you can say, ‘Hey, you know, look at the roster [of] the trips we have, and you can be a part of them and they can be on your resume when you graduate. We are probably one of the few to do so.

WILMINGTON — The Cincinnati Reds, Atlanta Hawks and Pittsburgh Penguins were among more than two dozen sports-related organizations at Wilmington College on Friday, April 8. They met with sports management students to discuss internship and job opportunities at WC’s annual Sports Management Professional Day. .

They have the ability to craft their elevator pitch and work on interview techniques.

And there are good reasons why the aforementioned pro teams, plus the Cleveland Cavaliers, Columbus Blue Jackets, and NFL On Location Experiences — among many others — come to Wilmington College for Pro Day. The proof is in the success they have had in hiring Wilmington College students and alumni. Indeed, a dozen of the organizations’ recruiters are WC alumni, some of whom were on the other side of the interview just a year ago.

“It’s my favorite day of the year!” said Ledford. “I feel like it’s a sports management meeting. Many alumni here present attended this event as students. Current students can now see the full circle from student to practitioner – which I am most proud of! »

Other vendors who interviewed WC students were Cleveland Monsters, FC Cincinnati, Ohio State University, Village Sports Hall of Fame, Penn Gaming, FanGate, Motz Group, Chillicothe Paints, Total Quality Logistics, Florence Y- alls, Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon, Clinton County Special Olympics, Mount Orab Sports Complex, Warren County Visitors Bureau, St. Bernard High School, Wilmington High School, Ohio Galaxies, Clinton County Youth Council, Foffee and Future Stars of Dayton.

Sports management major Arielle Friedman landed a real opportunity to work at Super Bowl LVI while researching options online. She calls the Super Bowl internship a “once in a lifetime experience.”

The Cherry Hill, NJ native was responsible for the execution of Super Bowl LVI events and assisted with hospitality efforts for high profile Super Bowl LVI guests. “I have provided match day customer service initiatives to over 70,000 fans. During my internship, I had the opportunity to network with many sports professionals who work for the Lakers, Sparks, Angels, Dodgers, Clippers and more,” Friedman said. “It’s something I never imagined myself doing.”

Friedman says the sport management faculty at CPASS supports his career path. “The teachers taught me everything I need to know. They acted as a guide when I needed help. The teachers showed me how to gain real-world experience and use it to the best of my abilities. The program features faculty who have real-life experience working in the sports industry,” she said.

“Dr. Gary Lhotsky has been by my side since freshman orientation. He’s been a big part of my success,” Friedman said. is always on the lookout for job offers that might pique my interest. Without him, I don’t know if I would be where I am today.

Lhotsky, an associate professor of teaching SM, says Friedman stood out from the former at Decide WVU Day in the spring of 2019. “She told me she wanted to get some sports-related experience and said she had worked wrestling matches in high school. I hooked her up with the WVU Wrestling Operations GA, and she immediately started helping once she got to campus,” he said. “Since then, she has taken advantage of experiential learning opportunities in other areas of athletics and continues to expand her network.
