SHEA HANSEN JOINS MILWAUKEE ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT NAMED GM OF PANTHER SPORTS PROPERTIES
MILWAUKEE – Shea Hansen has been named General Manager of Milwaukee Panther Sports Properties as announced today by Learfield IMG College.
Hansen comes to the Panthers after spending the past year with the Green Bay Packers, working as a corporate sales executive in their Milwaukee office.
That followed a four-year stretch with Learfield IMG College, working at Indiana (three years) and Cal Poly (one year) as a business development manager. She also worked for two years as the marketing assistant at Marquette (while earning her Master’s Degree in Sports Leadership) and as an account coordinator for the New York Post after graduating from Pace University.
“We are excited to have a quality talent like Shea lead our local Milwaukee Panthers team,” said Learfield IMG College Vice President Chris Bloomfield. “Her dedicated sales and sports marketing experience will be invaluable as we continue to work alongside Amanda (Braun) and the entire athletics administration to help grow the Panthers’ brand on a state, regional and national level.”
At Pace, she received the Darrell Halloran Memorial Award, which goes to the top overall senior student-athlete at the school. A four-year volleyball player and President of SAAC, she ranks second all-time in assists in school history and was selected as the Female Athlete of the Year award in her junior year.
“We look forward to having Shea on board representing Milwaukee Athletics in our sponsorship and multimedia initiatives with Learfield IMG College, and to help us manage Panther Sports Properties,” Milwaukee Director of Athletics Amanda Braun said. “Shea brings an impressive background and diversity of experience in the local market, and helps us strengthen our expanded relationship with Learfield IMG College. We are excited for her to get started and working with her.”
