Linnea Begley

Senior Analyst at Athena Global Advisors

Linnea’s exposure to the revenue side of the sports industry, coupled with her liberal arts education, has established and developed her passion for strategic communications, brand management, and marketing. Linnea’s work with Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union, supporting revenue and ticketing teams, culminated in the 2021 MLS Cup Eastern Conference Finals game, which generated the most revenue for a game in team history. As an analytic thinker, Linnea is trained to process complex problems and provide macro-perspective analysis, and her communication skills enable her to translate those perspectives among team members as well as relate to clients on any level. The same competitive spirit that made Linnea a Division I athlete drives her to strive for new expertise and challenges, and a team-first mentality is part of her DNA.
