Lone Star Conference Commissioner Stan Wagnon announced Monday that Tommy Wright has been named Assistant Commissioner for Corporate Sales and Marketing.
Wright, who started his role in early September, is responsible for league-wide corporate partnership opportunities and sponsorships at the Lone Star Football Festival and Championship Tournament events, along with developing and maintaining a conference marketing plan.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled about adding Tommy to our staff,” Wagnon said. “We have asked Tommy to focus on sales and to cultivate corporate partnerships that will benefit the Lone Star Conference and its constituents. Tommy is an ideal fit for this position, starting with his ties to the area, his education in a nationally recognized sports sponsorship program at Baylor, and his experience with sales throughout Texas while working with Daktronics. I’m confident he will be an outstanding addition to our team.”
Previously, he sold partnerships for Daktronics Sports Marketing all over the state of Texas including The Valley, San Antonio, East Texas and the DFW Metroplex.
Wright graduated from Baylor in May 2011 with a double major in Sports Sponsorship & Sales and Management. While at Baylor, he was an intern in the athletic marketing department. Wright helped manage tailgating at Floyd Casey Stadium and ran in-game promotions for the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Additionally, he was President of the Sports Sponsorship and Sales Club.
A native of Plano, Texas and Algonquin, Ill., Wright now lives in McKinney, with his fiancé, Lindsey.
