Julia has loved sports since her early childhood. She played lacrosse in college and was also elected team captain. Naturally, she wanted to enter the business of sports and worked for three years with the Buffalo Bills and the University of Tennessee Athletics Department during college. Shortly after graduating, Julia landed a very highly coveted position with the Atlanta Falcons. She worked for the Falcons’ corporate sponsorships department for 3 years and secured partnerships with more than 30 local, regional and national brands.
At SportsTrust, Julia leverages several years of experience and relationships with NFL-related sponsors and NFL teams to help create and manage branding, marketing, social media, and philanthropic opportunities for our clients. In her first 5 years here, Julia has worked tirelessly and truly overhauled our athlete branding services. Her impact at SportsTrust was recently rewarded with a promotion to Vice President of Athlete Branding.
During her years with us at the Falcons, Julia was always a very hard worker, a team player, knowledgeable, great with people, and a very effective salesperson. We were very disappointed to lose her, but with her experience, skill set and personality, she has a great future in marketing NFL players for off-field opportunities.
RICH MCKAY, PRESIDENT & CEO, ATLANTA FALCONS
