Join us for this month's YMBL Speaker Series with Andy Loughnane. 

Andy Loughnane (pronounced “Lock-nane”) has served as President of Austin FC since the formation of the Club in January 2019, and his sports and entertainment background has encompassed leadership and sales roles across three major leagues in North America: MLS, NBA, and NHL. As President of Austin FC, Loughnane oversees all aspects of Austin FC’s business operations including: ticketing; sponsorship; merchandise; food & beverage; marketing; digital/social; broadcast; community impact; and stadium operations.

Under Loughnane’s leadership, Austin FC has enjoyed one of the most successful launches in professional sports history. Austin FC completed construction of Q2 Stadium and St. David’s Performance Center ahead of the Club’s inaugural 2021 season, and Austin FC has since sold-out 100% of its regular season (and playoff) matches played at Q2 Stadium which allows Austin FC to own the longest active sellout streak in MLS. Austin FC has consistently ranked at/near the top of the League in multiple key performance areas across the Club’s first 3 seasons.

The event will happen atop the Chase Bank Tower at the Headliners Club on the 20th floor in the McBee room. This classy establishment has been home to Texas politicians and business leaders since 1955. 

Doors open at 11:30am, where there will be 30 minutes of networking as people trickle in. You will seat yourself at noon after filling up your plate at the lunch buffet. Feel free to invite your friends! Parking is easy in the connected garage, and validated parking is just $5.

Andy will talk about his career story, unique challenges in Austin, and his outlook on the future. It'll open up to a brief Q&A at the end, so come prepared with your questions!
