The ‘ASM Global’ stated that in making the announcement, ASM President and CEO Ron Bension said, “We have the scale, consumer touchpoints and ability to integrate brands into music, sports, business, tech, and more -that will drive value for the brands, content providers, venue partners, and guests. Jason’s extensive experience, particularly with the International Management Group (IMG) in forging new national partnerships with Fortune 1000 brands, will provide far and away the most diverse and enriching opportunities the industry has ever seen.”

Los Angeles (US)-based ASM Global is the world’s leading producer of entertainment experiences. It is the global leader in venue and event strategy and management – delivering locally tailored solutions and cutting-edge technologies to achieve maximum results for venue owners. The company’s elite venue network spans five continents, with a portfolio of more than 325 of the world’s most prestigious arenas, stadiums, convention and exhibition centers, and performing arts venues.

The ‘ASM Global’ further stated that in Oberlander’s new role, the former Senior Vice-President, National Sales, Learfield IMG College, will oversee ASM’s plans to grow its well-established industry-leading position in naming rights and marketing partnership generation for its arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers.

Oberlander was a key architect of the growth of the leading collegiate marketing company, which holds the multimedia rights to more than 200 of the nation’s top collegiate athletic properties including the vast majority of Power 5 programs.

He added, “Fans are craving live-event experiences more than ever, and brands will want to be a part of those moments. No one has the breadth of events, venues, tenant partners, and boots on the ground like ASM. At a full run, there are 164 million people coming through our venues. That’s more than the four major US professional sports leagues combined. We are very excited to show brand partners what we’re planning.”
