Belmont University Director of Athletics Scott Corley announced Monday, July 23, 2018 the hire of Drew Davenport to the position of director of sales and sponsorships.
Davenport spent the past three-plus years at Tulane University, most recently serving as account manager for athletic ticket sales.
Harnessing positive momentum from Tulane's move to an on-campus football stadium, Davenport helped spearhead ticket revenue goals on the gridiron and the hardwood. Specifically, Davenport served as direct point-of-contact for ticketing of Green Wave volleyball and baseball, leading Tulane to new heights in volleyball ticket revenue.
"Drew's experience and passion will be welcome additions to our department," Corley said. "Throughout the search process, Drew exhibited the professionalism and unassuming nature of a long-tenured Belmont staff member. We will draw upon his experience in ticket sales, customer relations and athletic development, and look forward to working with him during this exciting time for Belmont University Athletics."
A native of Carthage, Tennessee, Davenport held several roles within the University of Tennessee athletic department and the Nashville Sports Council.
Davenport earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in sport management from the University of Tennessee.
