Chief Revenue Officer
Member Since: 2015
Brent Schoeb is in his eighth season with the San Francisco 49ers and first as Chief Revenue Officer, after previously serving as the Vice President of Corporate Partnerships (Sales & Activation). In his role, Schoeb is charged with overseeing corporate partnership sales, corporate partnership activation, broadcast partnerships, premium hospitality sales, premium hospitality services and ticketing for the 49ers, as well as events at Levi’s Stadium, which was voted the SportsBusiness Journal’s Sports Facility of the Year in 2015. Schoeb’s team provides an extensive portfolio of opportunities, which have included Super Bowl 50 events, a Bowl Game entitlement and the Pac-12 Championship Game. This season, Schoeb is leading the Bay Area Host Committee’s corporate partnership efforts, in advance of Levi’s Stadium hosting the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. Schoeb is also involved with partnership consulting for 49ers Enterprises and Elevate Sports Ventures.
Currently, the 49ers rank as one of the top teams in the NFL in corporate partnership revenue. The 49ers have more million dollar corporate partnerships than any other NFL team and partner with some of the most recognizable brands in the world. Under Schoeb’s leadership, the partnership sales efforts have led to four consecutive years of record-breaking revenue growth. Schoeb’s team has delivered best-in-class activations, garnering several awards from ANA, Clio, Event Marketer, as well as being named 2017 ESPN Humanitarian Team of the Year due in part to the involvement of the 49ers STEM entitlement partner.
Leveraging the 49ers proximity to Silicon Valley, Schoeb has pioneered a number of new, innovative partnership categories. In turn, he instituted the first-ever Corporate Partner Tech Talk focusing on authentic partner technology integrations.
This is Schoeb’s second stint with the 49ers. During his Candlestick Park tenure, he led the corporate partnership sales team in new business development, including selling the first 49ers season-presenting partnership. At the time, it was the largest deal in the history of the franchise outside of naming rights.
Between stints with the 49ers, Schoeb was Director of Corporate Partnerships for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway/Indy 500. There he sold the IMS Solar Farm, the largest solar installment at any sports venue in the world, winning a NASCAR Green Summit award. Prior to joining the 49ers, Schoeb served on the corporate partnerships team for the NBA Memphis Grizzlies where he was the recipient of an NBA Best Practice award.
A Minnesota native, Schoeb is a graduate of St. Cloud State University and later completed his MBA and Masters of Sports Administration at Ohio University. Schoeb has served as a guest lecturer at both Stanford University and Ohio University, and currently serves as a member of the Steering Committee for the National Sports Forum.
Schoeb resides with his wife, Jessica, and daughter, Taetum, in San Jose, California.
