5:30 PM - KEYNOTE: SEAN OTHEN - Manager of Corporate Partnerships, Cleveland Browns
Sean Othen is the Manager of Corporate Partnerships for the Browns. As a “triple Bobcat,” Sean earned his undergraduate degree in Sport Management at Ohio University in 2008 along with an MBA in 2010 and an MSA in 2011. After spending a year with the International Speedway Corporation in Daytona crafting his sponsorship sales skills, the Hudson, Ohio native then took his talents back to the Cleveland area to work in his current role.

As Keynote, Sean will be in a unique position to speak about the sport business and corporate impact that Johnny Football and LeBron’s return have had on the Cleveland market. Moreover, his personal story regarding the quick ascent in his career path will resonate with undergraduate and graduate students alike since it wasn’t very long ago that he was in those positions here in Athens.
