Ep. 38 - Erin Stone

"It's about creating a great experience, a positive environment, in an area that attracts fans, is enjoyable for players, that businesses want to be associated with and creating unique sponsorships and opportunities. So all the business of sport is really pretty universal."

Erin Stone says she has the highest level respect for operations people who work in golf considering how they build a functioning venue for spectators and vendors around a golf course, often while accounting for the rolling terrain that runs alongside the pristine tees, fairways and greens. Making those areas spectator friendly is very important for Erin in her role as tournament director of the FedEx St. Jude Invitational, a World Golf Championship event held in Memphis. Working with a global partner such as FedEx as well as having a charitable partner like St. Jude’s are also part of Erin’s role at the tournament. In this episode, Erin shares insights from her time not only working with this PGA Tour event but also with an ATP Tour tournament as well as an NHL team and the common aspects of her work regardless of the sport.
