KENT, Ohio – Kent State University has selected LEARFIELD Amplify for representation of its outbound sales team, as announced by Director of Athletics Randale L. Richmond. This dedicated team will work alongside and complement existing members of Kent State’s staff to provide an even deeper level of support for fans and donors.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with LEARFIELD and to work with the Amplify team,” Richmond said. “We look forward to working with them to elevate our ability to deliver a tremendous gameday experience for our student-athletes and fans.”

“Randale has a dynamic vision for what Kent State Athletics can achieve, and we are thrilled to help support that vision,” said LEARFIELD Amplify EVP Jake Bye. “We’re excited about what we can accomplish together.
