Jake, a MAC graduate and former student athlete, now holds the position of Account Executive for New Business at Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment in Toronto.
His job responsibilities involve increasing revenue from tickets for the Toronto Raptors, Leafs, and Toronto FC by focusing on season ticket sales to both corporate and fan accounts. Jake interacts with companies who buy tickets to host clients, interact with new business prospects, network, and use as a donation or gift. He also tries to turn casual fans into season ticket holders to encourage future visits. In addition to these responsibilities, Jake helps plan group outings for businesses and organizations.
During his time at MAC, Jake was involved as both a student athlete and an employee working in-game operations. He was also an RA and planned monthly events for his residents. All of these opportunities helped him develop a professional and applicable skill set that enabled him to receive a Graduate Assistant job with Auburn University in their athletics department.
