Boosta, Chief Growth Officer
Former Nike teammates reunite. In our last update, August ‘21, we announced the appointment of Joe Elsmore who after 30+ years of experience in the Soccer Industry as Nike Director North America Soccer Sports Marketing, joined the Boosta Team as Director of Sports Marketing.
While at Nike, Joe and Robbie worked hand-in-hand. Together, they led Nike’s Marketing efforts with the United States Soccer Federation, including campaigns for the 2011 Women’s World Cup, 2012 Olympic Games, and the 2014 Men’s World Cup. At the grassroots level, Joe and Robbie leveraged Nike’s sponsorship of US Youth Soccer, US Club Soccer, and ECNL to make Nike the most coveted brand partner at the grassroots level, bar none.
With an experienced team, deeply connected in soccer and a refined process, we are set to scale the soccer category with a strong network of partners.
