The year has flown by and it’s been a great one for sports and social media. In the last year, we’ve seen almost every professional sports team start to create a social media strategy, and none of it would have been possible without the many creative people at work in the sports industry. As a result we’ve created a poll to see who, in your opinion is the MVP of social media sports professionals in 2010!
On the ballot, we have SB Nation CEO Jim Bankoff, New York Jets‘ Matthew Higgins, Digital Royalty‘s Amy Jo Martin, CNBC’s Darren Rovell, Brian Gainor from Partnership Activation, Russell Scibetti from the Business of Sports, Leverage Agency’s Ben Sturner, David Barton-Ginger of All Blacks, Daniel McLaren from the UK Sports Network, Darren Heitner from Sports Agent Blog, Jason Peck from JasonFPeck.com, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Scott Phelps, Ash Read from FundSport.com, and Vaynermedia’s Stephanie Bagley and Sam Taggart. All of these individuals have been hustling their rears off to platform themselves as leading pioneers in this new space. Also, feel free to add your own suggestion in the ballot below, as we’re sure to have forgotten some great people. Don’t forget to click submit!
EDIT: Voting is now closed. Thank you everyone for their responses. We had over 2400 votes. Look for more posts this week to announce the winner.
