Director of Sports Marketing, Fort Worth CVB
Fort Worth, Texas
Josh Dill’s career closely mirrors some great sports movies.
2006-08: “Slap Shot”
“A fledgling franchise does whatever it can to stay afloat.”
“The scrappy little underdog tries hard.”
2013-present: “Field of Dreams”
“If you build it, he will come.”
Sports have always played a starting role in Dill’s life, so it comes as no surprise that he has spent his entire professional career in the sports event industry. In July 2013, Dill was tasked with leading the sports marketing efforts for the Fort Worth CVB. In his time in Fort Worth, Dill has served on local organizing committees for major events like the NCAA Men’s Final Four and the inaugural College Football Playoff Championship Game. He was also instrumental in securing NCAA Women’s Gymnastics National Championships, the first major NCAA championship to be hosted within the Fort Worth city limits.
“Josh has never met a challenge or a buffet that he didn’t conquer,” says Matt Wilson, director of sports at Arlington (Texas) CVB.
My first job in the hospitality industry was… the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World.
