PHILADELPHIA – Temple University Senior Associate Athletic Director Eric Roedl has been named the 3rd Vice President of the College Athletic Business Management Association (CABMA), the organization's Executive Committee announced today.
Roedl, who is in his eighth year on the Temple staff, takes a place on the committee due to the departure of former 2nd VP Derrick Magee. As written in the CABMA Constitution, the vacant position of VP shall be filled in order of ascending office with Chauncey Winbush, associate athletics director/business affairs at the United States Naval Academy moving into the 2nd VP/Secretary role. Ross Cobb, senior associate athletics director/business and facilities at The University of Texas at San Antonio, will continue to serve as President for 2010-11 and Stacy Martin, assistant athletics director-business at Kansas State University will serve as 1st Vice President.
"It is an honor to be given the opportunity to serve on the CABMA Executive Board," Roedl said. "It is a prestigious organization in the college athletics industry and I look forward to working with my fellow executive committee members and our membership to help move the organization forward."
“We are excited to have Eric join us on the Executive Committee,” Cobb said. “He has been an active member in the Association for seven years and has served on various CABMA committees. His role at Temple as the CFO, as well as overseeing marketing and promotions, make him a great fit for the duties associated with this Committee."
In his position at Temple, Roedl serves as the Chief Financial Officer of the athletic department and is responsible for managing the $28 million athletic department budget, the athletic business office, personnel, information technology, marketing and promotions, ticket sales and operations, and corporate sponsorships.
While at Temple, Roedl has balanced seven consecutive annual athletic department budgets, spearheaded initiatives to grow ticket and corporate sponsorship revenues, negotiated several major contracts, including Temple's recent five-year all-sport footwear/apparel agreement with Under Armour, and played a lead role in athletic department strategic and financial planning.
