Cleveland. A natural sales and marketing leader, Myles C. Gallagher, has been named the Cleveland Mayo Society’s 2019 Person of the Year. The Cleveland native is a graduate of St. Edward High School and John Carroll University.
A pioneer in premium seating and sponsorship sales with the Cleveland Indians and IMG’S Motorsports Division, he quite naturally morphed into a full-service agency, transitioning Naming Rights from a sports stadium niche to an integral part of infrastructure financing. “We saw a need and filled it.”
Formed 25 years ago, The Superlative Group (www.superlativegroup.com) is considered one of the premier consulting and sales organizations in the area of Naming Rights and Sponsorship Valuation and Sales in the U.S., Canada, Ireland and the U.K. Under his creative leadership they have produced more than $2 billion worth of corporate sponsorships and naming rights, among them the US Marine Corps, US Army, Cleveland Clinic, Twentieth Century Fox, NUI Galway, Trinity University and others too numerous to mention.
Gallagher will be honored at the Society’s 2019 Green and Red Ball at Cleveland’s InterContinental Hotel at Cleveland Clinic on Saturday September 28, 2019. He and his spouse Laura have been married 32 years. They are parents of Meghan, Molly, Myles F. and Sean.
