David Russell is our Senior Director of Sports Sales and he’s here to answer all your questions about hosting sporting events in Little Rock. He’s been with the Bureau since 1983, so it’s fair to say he knows his stuff.
David is witty, funny and dedicated. He always goes the extra mile to see the joy in event planners when their events go off without a hitch. A large portion of his clients aren’t professional planners – they may be soccer moms or tennis dads who are just trying to host a successful event. David loves getting to know them and working with them to make their event shine.
One of his favorite LRCVB moments? Bidding for the 2008 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Championship (First/Second Round). He knew Little Rock would be a long shot but worked hard on the city’s bid. When Little Rock was ultimately selected to host the tournament, he felt a great deal of pride each night while watching the tournament on ESPN, knowing that he’d play a major role in the event’s success.
