Per a press release from GoAheadPR, Vault Sports and Entertainment, a sports marketing firm with a focus in sponsorships, social media management and strategic partnership development, had a very successful first year of business.
Vault was established in 2015 by founder Matt Wells to provide an “affordable alternative to the high cost and bloated sports marketing agencies many brands and sports properties rely on time and time again.” The agency currently works with one of the largest races in Indiana – the Madison Regatta. Wells felt compelled to reach out to this event after two years of no corporate partnerships. He secured major partnerships from MainSource Bank and Belterra Casino Resort and looks to add more.
In addition to the Madison Regatta, Vault works with IFAST (a Top Ten Men’s Health Magazine gym), STATS (skill training, athletic training, shooting), NCAA and NBA sanctioned summer league Knox Indy Pro AM and TPG Sports Group, a professional event networking group geared toward professional basketball, agents and sports tech.
Vault aims to help regional brands expand through strategic partnerships and savvy, low-cost marketing techniques. After 13-months in existence, Wells and co. have done just that and look to continue to grow. He has already partnered with companies in Denver and Chicago to expand Vault’s service lines and plans to be in the athlete representation business by the end of the year, dedicating an entire branch of the company to representing basketball clients.
According to the company, Wells studied politics at Butler University before working as a legislative aide. He then went to law school at Indiana University in Indianapolis where he focused in intellectual property and entertainment law.
