Name: Daniel Izzo
Title: Premium Sales Manager
Company: Philadelphia 76ers
Q: What do you do for the Philadelphia 76ers?
A: I work in the Premium Sales Department so my concentration is on the sale of contractual luxury suites, club boxes and court side seats. My sales come primarily from B2B with companies that place an importance on relationship development, face time with clients and networking. I’ve enjoyed just working in the NBA and really starting to establish myself within the business community and develop some great relationships.
Q: How did you get started in this career path?
A: I started working in Triple-A Baseball in Tucson, AZ as an intern. I began full time with that team after graduating from the University of Arizona. That team was then bought and relocated to Reno, NV where I was for two years. I’ve always been in some sort of sales position.
Q: How long have you lived in the Philadelphia area?
A: This August will be the two-year mark for me living in Philadelphia.
Q: What do you do when you are not working?
A: Free time during the season is difficult to come by, especially because I’m finishing my Masters in Sport Management at Drexel. When I have time, I enjoy the movies, being outdoors playing sports, drawing and traveling.
Q: What is your favorite part about living in the Philadelphia region?
A: I like how Philly is so close to many other cities on the east coast. I’ve lived in Rittenhouse since I’ve been here so I love that entire area.
