COSMOS CONTINUES TO DOMINATE IN THE DRAFT
Young leadership team members Promoted at cosmos

By Cosmos Sports | October 1, 2021

Cosmos Sports & Entertainment is announcing an exciting restructuring resulting in a new wave of talent being promoted to senior roles in our company.

Since the company’s inception in 2003, amazingly nearly 300 rookies (interns) have worked with Cosmos. Many having gone on to extremely successful careers. We take great pride in developing and rewarding young talent in this industry, and the result has been the emergence of great talent.   

Often we have been able to retain these emerging stars, led by Director Abhinav Nongmeikapam who recently celebrated his record 15th anniversary with Cosmos. Our Marketing & Strategy Consultant Evan Colborne is not far behind reaching his 11th year. Both began as interns.   

Today however, is to recognize the youth movement of Cosmos. In particular, Evan O’Connor after leading the successful sales teams for the Toronto Wolfpack & Brampton Beast, was named one of the company’s youngest Directors earlier this year, heading up our Sales & Service department.

And following that, we are supported by four (4) emerging Managers with Cosmos all age 26 or younger.  As of this month, Mike Lorkovich, formerly Director of Ticket Sales for the Brampton Beast, has been named Manager of Sales & Service; Olivia Sala who has taken both marketing and recruiting to new heights with Cosmos in the last three years is being named Manager of Marketing & Communications; Ned Djogo, since his start with Cosmos on the Toronto Arrows account, has rapidly excelled into a leadership role within the expanding corporate sponsorship division and is now the Partnerships Manager and Mitch Dumouchelle who navigates a significant role in marketing, sponsorship and new business for Cosmos is the new Manager of Business Development & Design. Finally, Laura Shatka joined us full time this year as well as both Executive Assistant and Corporate Services helping to make our team even stronger.

With the strong young core taking on leadership roles, Cosmos is well positioned to continue to deliver on the company Vision of “creating the happiest fans in the Cosmos” as we all navigate our way out of the recent pandemic, and gain a greater appreciation than ever for the power of live sports & entertainment.

Supporting this youth movement is the continued leadership of the heartbeat of our company, Vice President Amelia Kaplan and our sponsorship leader, consultant and owner of Roth Revenue, Gavin Roth providing mentorship to the entire Cosmos team.

Looking forward to finishing 2021 strong and taking  giant steps forward in 2022.
