TJ has spent over 25 years in a variety of sports and marketing roles, including stints with the Chicago Cubs (he’s a Sox fan), St. John’s University Athletics (when they were still in the Big East!), Edelman Sports PR (1996 World Cup!) and Kemper Sports Marketing (Maui + Basketball = the Maui Invitational Basketball tournament). Before joining Newbridge Marketing Group, TJ spent four years at Marketing Werks leading their new business efforts creating experiences for brands like Hershey’s, Chevy, Monsanto, Cartoon Network and other national brands.
TJ gets excited about creating one-to-one connections between consumers and brands and seeing an experiential campaign creating an emotional connection. “I love when the vision we create with our partners turns into an experience that stays with a student, mom, dad or child for years to come.”
Outside of work, TJ can likely be found coaching one of his four kids in soccer, hiking, our on a run or catching live music throughout Chicago.
