Longo’s industry experience includes serving as Vice President of Marketing/Community Development for the New Jersey Devils (NHL), president of Charlotte Checkers Professional Hockey (ECHL), and president of the San Diego Gulls Professional Hockey (WCHL), owner of the Fayetteville Marksman (SPHL) and co-founder of Sports Biz Camps (a non-profit dedicated to increasing social mobility for students through education while expanding diversity in the sports industry).

Education

  • M.A.Ed., Sports Administration, Wingate University
  • B.A., Psychology & Communication, Rutgers University

I feel that it is important for professors to not only help students develop the technical skills that will best prepare them for industry success, but also to help advocate for them and connect them to opportunities that will best serve as a platform for them in which to find that success.

  • SEE3850 Negotiations and Agreements in Hospitality Sports, Entertainment and Event Management
  • SEE4020 Sports and Entertainment Marketing
