Former Client Services interns Kenton Meckley and Morgan Haase have been promoted to full-time positions on the team’s staff. Both joined the Revolution before the 2021 season and helped coordinate and execute client advertising and groups and hospitality event logistics.
Meckley has been named a full-time sales account executive with the team. Selling group tickets, sponsorship opportunities, and advertising, he will match local businesses and groups with solutions to reward and entertain employees and group members and help area businesses promote their products and services to the York community. A York County native, Meckley is a 2021 graduate of Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and earned a bachelor’s degree in Sports Management.
Haase has stepped into the newly created role of Party and Events Sales Coordinator. She will work with parties, groups, and families to plan and execute parties, meetings, and events of all types at PeoplesBank Park, including use of the 1741 Club presented by UPMC, one of the ballpark’s several year-round hospitality spaces. Haase earned her bachelor’s degree in Sport Management with a minor in Marketing from the University of West Georgia. Haase hails from Atlanta.
Sarah Leo has joined the team as Director of Client Services, managing fulfillment of contracts between the Revolution and its sponsors and advertisers. Originally from Pittsburgh, she earned her associate’s degree in Hospitality & Travel Management from the Bradford School of Business in Pittsburgh. Leo later earned both her bachelor’s degree (Sports Media & Marketing) and her master’s degree (Public Relations) from Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. She joins the Revs after three years as Director of Partnership Activations for the Macon Bacon and a stint with the Florida Fire Frogs as Director of Marketing.
Brianna Klinger has been named the Revolution’s Group Theme Event Coordinator. In the newly created position, she’ll work with the team’s Marketing department to craft the elements of themed Revolution games created for or to attract groups in the area. Klinger comes to the Revs after working for the Nashville Sounds’ Promotions department. She previously worked in New York City with The Heisman Trophy Trust, assisting with operations and selling annual journal ads while earning her master’s degree in Sports Business from New York University. A native of New Paltz, New York, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Sports Management from SUNY Brockport.
