In my own words...
I’ve always strived to build businesses around my passions. Doing so has enabled me to create, help grow, and eventually sell two different sports and entertainment agencies. Goviva, the most recent agency, was acquired by Creative Artists Agency in 2015.
Prior to the acquisition by CAA, Goviva was a leader in the experiential space. Our clients were mainly Fortune 500 companies including American Express, SAP, Capital One, Salesforce and Google. In 2015, the company was #175 on the Inc.500 list of the fastest growing companies in America.
My first business, Tuchman Sports Enterprises (TSE) was acquired by the private equity firm Pfingsten Partners in 2006. Through a subsequent acquisition it became part of the NFL’s On Location business which today is owned by William Morris Endeavor. TSE was an innovator in experiential as one of the first companies to curate exclusive experiences around major sporting and entertainment events. Our clients included iconic brands such as Hershey, Coca Cola, Budweiser, and Microsoft. In 2006 prior to being sold, TSE made #396 on the Inc. 500 list.
I have written two books, 100 Sporting Events You Must See Live (Benbella Books) and Young Guns, The Fearless Entrepreneur's Guide to Chasing Your Dreams and Breaking Out on Your Own (AMACOM Publishing).
I am proud to serve on the boards of the ALS Association Greater New York Chapter and New York Edge, which serves the academic and personal needs of more than 40,000 underprivileged students in New York City. Our mission at New York Edge is to help bridge the opportunity gap among underserved students in New York City by providing programs designed to improve academic performance, health and wellness, self-confidence, character and attitudes for success in life.
