News Story

This is a story about how a kid from Brooklyn started from scratch, bought Yankee Stadium, and built a sports empire. On January 29, Pace Board of Trustees Chairman Mark Besca sits down with Brandon Steiner.

InsideTrack with President Stephen J. Friedman brings renowned thought leaders and policymakers to Pace University for captivating discussions on topics and issues that affect us all. However, this January, InsideTrack throws us a curve ball.

President Friedman invites you to join him and the Pace Community as he turns the Schimmel stage over to Chairman of the Pace Board of Trustees Mark M. Besca ’81 and featured guest CEO of Steiner Sports Marketing, Inc. Brandon Steiner on January 29 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Besca and Steiner will sit down for a significant discussion on the intersection of business and sports and the innovative approaches to business and commerce that entrepreneurs commonly employ across all fields, not just sports marketing. In addition to his role as CEO, Steiner has made himself a permanent fixture in the media as a regular on ESPN Radio 1050 and as co-host of Yankees-Steiner: Memories of the Game on the YES Network. In his recent autobiography, You Gotta Have Balls, Steiner puts us inside his own mind, demonstrating from the inside-out the business and life philosophies that have propelled him to the top of the sports and marketing worlds.

Pace students are invited to attend the event free of charge. For more information on this InsideTrack and to register, click here.
