Sales & Marketing: Consumer Marketing/Brand Management
Director, Marketing and Brand - AMB Sports & Entertainment Group (Flowery Branch, GA)

AMB Sports & Entertainment Group is a subsidiary of AMB Group, LLC, and is comprised of the Atlanta Falcons Football Club, LLC, The Atlanta New Stadium Project, and a potential Atlanta Major League Soccer team. 

Atlanta Falcons Football Club, LLC

The Atlanta Falcons are a professional American football club and member of the National Football League (NFL).  The Falcons compete in the NFL’s NFC South Division. The team plays their home games at the Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta, but construction is planned to begin in 2014 on a new retractable roof stadium with play beginning in the 2017 season. The team’s headquarters and practice facilities are currently located at a 50-acre site in Flowery Branch, Georgia.  The Falcons’ NFL expansion franchise was awarded in 1965.  Under current owner Arthur Blank’s leadership, the Falcons have become one of the League’s premier teams on and off the field.

The Atlanta New Stadium Project (NSP) 

The Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) and the Falcons have developed an agreement for a new retractable roof stadium to be built on the GWCCA campus. Scheduled to open in 2017, the NSP will serve as the home of the Falcons in addition to other sports, convention and entertainment events currently held at the Georgia Dome, and other new marquee events that will be hosted in the future. Since their first season in 1966, the Atlanta Falcons have called Downtown Atlanta home. After spending their first 26 seasons at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, the Falcons moved to the Georgia Dome in 1992. The Falcons’ last season in the Georgia Dome will be 2016.  The new facility will allow the Falcons to provide a world-class, league-competitive, game-day, experience for fans to ensure the city and state are able to retain current major events as well as attract new marquee events to the region. The agreement calls for the Falcons organization to manage and operate all aspects of the NSP, unlike the current arrangement at the Georgia Dome. This represents a tremendous opportunity for the organization to control the game-day and event experience for all NSP attendees.

Atlanta MLS Team

AMB Sports & Entertainment Group will field a Major League Soccer (MLS) expansion team in 2017.  MLS, founded in 1996, is the top-flight professional soccer league in the United States.  This will be the 22nd franchise for the league, which has a presence in major markets across the United States and Canada and plans to expand to 24 franchises by 2020.
