Agreement is First Professional Sports Partnership for Consulting Firm
York, PA – Collegiate Consulting and the York Revolution Baseball Club have established a multi-year partnership for ticket sales. York Revolution is a member of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, an independent professional baseball league located in the mid-Atlantic region and Texas.
While this is the first such agreement for Collegiate Consulting in professional sports, the firm is very familiar with the Atlantic League. In July 2014, Collegiate Consulting aided the League with its search for a ticket software system. The project concluded with league-wide ticket software integration with CHARGED.fm and Glitnir Ticketing.
Collegiate Consulting’s Whitney Goulish will be focusing on the Revolution’s new season ticket sales on site at York. This includes growing the club’s season ticket revenue through full season tickets, multi-game packages and increasing the team’s customer base.
Goulish has been with Collegiate Consulting since September of 2014. A graduate of Northwood University with a dual degree in Entertainment, Sport, & Promotions Management and General Business Management, she was previously the Director of Ticket Sales for University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC). Additionally, Goulish has worked for five years in Minor League Baseball (MiLB) and two seasons in minor league hockey.
York Revolution President Eric Menzer sees the deal as a great opportunity to achieve organizational goals. “We are confident that this agreement with Collegiate Consulting will grow our customer base and supplement our financial objectives,” says Menzer. “Most importantly, we will have one person with a professional sales team behind her focused on this important area of our business, without any distraction. Along with the confidence that Collegiate Consulting will help keep our fan experience and customer service a top priority.”
Though the firm has been one of the leading providers of collegiate ticket sales and services, the agreement marks the beginning of Collegiate Consulting’s expansion into the profession sports industry. Currently, the firm has 11 ticket sales partners in college athletics, including the University of Illinois and Rice University.
“We are looking forward to beginning our first professional sport partnership with the York Revolution,” said Collegiate Consulting Vice President of Ticket Sales Jason Lai, “and have the utmost confidence in our staff to fulfill all of the goals that the team has for their baseball club, season ticket revenue and fans.”
