Rodriguez is chairman and CEO of A-Rod Corp, an investment firm that invests in world-class startups and partners with prominent global companies across multiple industries. One of the world’s greatest athletes for more than 25 years (a 14-time MLB All-Star and a 2009 World Series Champion with the New York Yankees), today he leads a diverse team of 1,000+ employees with a $2 billion portfolio. He is also an Emmy Award-winning MLB analyst for Fox Sports and ESPN.
“I’m certain our Orlando audience will want to know how Rodriguez creates value with investors while empowering global consumers, why he joined ‘Shark Tank’ as a judge and investor, and what his parents, who immigrated to New York City from the Dominican Republic, taught him along the way,” said Andrews. “He’ll also share an insider’s story on exactly what it takes to win a World Series. As an added bonus, audience members will get a chance to ask A-Rod a question and win an autographed baseball.”
ASI Fort Worth keynote speaker Charlotte Jones, Dallas Cowboys owner and chief brand officer, oversees business operations and marketing strategies for the global brand. During her keynote, she’ll discuss the challenges faced and solutions devised while building the world’s most valuable sports franchise. Jones will also share the five pillars responsible for the success of the Cowboys brand, her love of branded merch and cause marketing, and her favorite promo product.
