Sports, magic, now horse jumping. Daniel Gallagher has a wide range of hobbies, but one dream job and that’s the one he’s living right now.
Daniel Gallagher, one of Sports ETA’s Young Professionals, is the Director of Sports Sales at Atlantic City Sports Commission and Meet AC. He’s been in the industry for ten years and six of them have been spent with Atlantic City Sports Commission and Meet AC.
As the Director of Sports Sales, Daniel’s main goal is to drive economic impact to Atlantic City through sporting events and sport-related conventions. While it’s been a challenging year for the sports tourism industry, Daniel is ready and excited to work cohesively and creatively with event organizers during these uncharted times.
“We are all in this together,” Gallagher said. “And while sporting events are spearheading the charge for mass gatherings, proper protocols, mandates, and procedures are imperative to ensure that we can get back to where we once were.”
Daniel is an avid sports fan. His loyalty lies with the Dallas Cowboys and Villanova Wildcats. As a Villanova alum, one of Daniel’s favorite sports memories is Villanova beating UNC at the buzzer in 2016, while he was attending Sports ETA’s annual Symposium in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Daniel has been fortunate enough to travel and explore cities across the country with his job, he hopes to one day take a trip to the Maldives with his wife, Charlotte.
