This edition of the Forty Under 40 Spotlight Podcast, featuring interviews with winners of SportsBusiness Journal’s prestigious Forty Under 40 Award, is brought to you by Turnkey Search.
Listen as Michael Melnitzky, pinpoints his decision to major in business in college as one of the key strategic play of his career. What seemed perhaps like an unconventional choice for the sports industry was actually his personal plan to build his skillset in order to bring more to the table when getting his start in sports. The approach paid off. Rather than going into traditional investment and business he chose to go the sports route and the opportunity with Allen & Co. presented itself nine years ago.
Michael has learned that while networking and getting to know the more senior people in the room can be important, it’s often better to network with your own peers. These are the people you want to get to know and develop your career with. You grow together in your roles and in thirty years will have aged through the business together.
