Member Since: 2015
A 20-year veteran of the sports industry, Dave Mullins currently serves as Senior Vice President of Client Development at rEvolution. rEvolution is an integrated sports marketing agency who specializes in sponsorship consulting, creative strategy, experiential, PR, media services and measurement – with a client roster that includes Continental Tires, American Family Insurance, FIFA, Concacaf, ESPN and Chipotle.
Mullins joined rEvolution in 2018 and his primary role is advancing agency new business, developing relevant, impactful and innovative marketing solutions for clients, as well as unlocking, leading, pitching and winning competitive RFPs.
Prior to his current role at rEvolution, Mullins spent 12 years at GMR Marketing. During his last half of tenure at GMR he served as Vice President of Client Development, where he helped lead numerous account wins for the agency including Intel, Google and Esurance.
In the first half of his tenure at GMR, Mullins was an Account Director on Visa. While working on Visa’s NFL, NASCAR, Disney, golf and MLB team deals, he focused on managing Visa’s extensive sponsorship assets, leveraging their pass-through rights for member banks and merchants, as well as bringing to life money-can’t-buy experiences for Visa Signature cardholders.
Mullins began his career with the National Sports Forum (NSF), where he spent four years working his way up in the organization from intern to Vice President, and by the end of his tenure he was tasked with all business operations and marketing efforts of the company. Mullins now sits on the NSF Steering Committee and has been a speaker at that event, as well as other notable industry events such as SXSW and the Experiential Marketing Summit.
Outside of his professional life, Mullins has served as a mentor for Camp HOPE America since 2016, an organization dedicated to working with kids who have been victims of domestic violence to try and break the generational cycle of abuse and provide them with a pathway to hope.
A graduate of San Diego State University, Mullins has a BS in Communications with an Emphasis in Advertising. He currently lives in San Diego with his wife Taina, daughter Penelope and son Sebastian.
