“Success is achieved when no one is watching”

Guest Speaker: Mr. DJ Mackovets.

CEO of The World Games Birmingham 2021

DJ Mackovets has nearly 40 years of event marketing and operational planning experience in national and international sporting events. The Iowa native jumped into the event world as soon as he earned his degree from the University of Kansas and quickly worked his way up with each successive assignment. His early career focused on media relations, sponsorship sales and promotions for two pro football teams, college athletics and the Peach Bowl. In 1993, he cofounded the Thomas James Co., Inc. where his company provided strategic consulting services or served as a senior officer for various organizations such as, NFL Super Bowls, Olympic Games, NCAA Final Fours, National Senior Games and the World Police and Fire Games. To list all of the professional, collegiate and amateur sporting events and special projects he has worked would filled three pages. DJ approaches every client and project, regardless of size and scope, with the same attention to detail. What has been his favorite event? He says each one has been special in their own way, but when prompted he points to the Bassmaster Classic. “It’s amazing to see tens of thousands of passionate fans gather just to watch boats leave shore and to see fish being weighed. And they love it! It’s one big party.”
