#SBWeek Miami 2015 Interview with Mathew Ratner, Associate Executive Director for the Miami-Dade Sports Commission

By: Adam White, @FOSAdam

All around the world a few weeks ago, sports business professionals and aspiring students took part in #SBWeek events. At the Miami editon of #SBWeek held at American Social in Downtown Miami, we had the pleasure of sitting down with a few leading sports professionals as well as students looking to break into the industry. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be releasing them one by one and today we have the pleasure of showcasing our interview with Mathew Ratner, Associate Executive Director for the Miami-Dade Sports Commission. We would like to thank him for sitting down with us to talk about the experience of bringing global sporting events to Miami, why he likes the #SBWeek event and what working in sports means to him! Enjoy!
