EVERY PLAYER ON A TEAM PLAYS A KEY ROLE

PSP is no different, but what sets us apart is our team of all stars!

Jason grew up as a regular attendee at Nebraska football games with his dad. Those days fueled his passion for being part of the electric atmosphere that any live sports event can bring. As PSP’s founder, he leads, supports, and oversees everything with his zen-like demeanor. When not working, he’s definitely wrestling with his two boys.

As the number one draft pick in PSP’s history, Tamara orchestrates. Accuracy, pocket awareness, and leadership are just some of her main traits. A true maestro of making people shine, she’s the heartbeat of our team. Outside PSP, water is Tamara’s haven, whether it’s a pool, beach, river, or lake.

TAMARA LUPO

Bill has the legs of a potential professional soccer player. Yet, he chose to remain on the business side, channeling sports’ unmatched passion into tangible brand outcomes. He leads the brand leadership team, ensuring that clients’ goals are not only met but exceeded. When not at PSP, you’ll often spot Bill at local soccer and softball fields, cheering for his two daughters.

Or is it the other way around?  

AMBER SELLERS

Director, Brand Leadership
& Master of Planks

Colleen is the tracker of all trackers, the balancer of big ideas vs. budget, and the questioner of “is that color in brand guidelines?When she’s not embarking on a never-been-done-before mission for a client, she can be found lost (literally) on a hiking trail, arranging closets in the most concerning fashion, or sampling new beers with enthusiasm.

COLLEEN O’MARA

Director, Brand Leadership
& Quidditch Chaser

Phillip has worked across the nation in college athletics but now is his time to shine with the pros! He’s built a playbook full of creative partnership activations (and actual football plays), but it’s his trademark puns that will hit you harder than a pulling guard on a trap play.

A former pitcher, Nate knows what it takes to grab the ball and close the game. His experience in the bullpen equips him with the finesse needed to build relationships and close sponsorship deals. Armed with a blend of humor and occasional trash talk, he’ll always refer back to Kevin Millar, saying: “Don’t let us win today!”

NATE LORENZEN

When Amanda shared with her fellow West Virginians that she was moving to Houston to work for PSP, she was told two things: get insect repellent and get ready for some honky-tonk. She plays a key role in social content creation, monitoring performance for several initiatives. In her spare time, she humiliates strangers in the game of trivia. At honky-tonk bars, of course.
