Andrew Carl has worked with national sports brands including USA Badminton, Temple University Athletics and Villanova University Athletics. While he’s a professional sales manager specializing in fulfilling the wishes of facilities, event organizers and hoteliers’ needs, his wife will tell you he’s far from the salesperson he thinks he is.

Career Accomplishments

Carl has worked with top event organizers to bring nationally recognized events to Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Through strategic partnerships, trade show sponsorships, elbow grease and the occasional drink, Carl has worked tirelessly to make the events of the PGA, USA Weightlifting, Adrenaline Lacrosse, MyHockey Tournaments and many others successful and mutually enriching events.
