HORROW SPORTS VENTURES

From its inception, Horrow Sports Ventures has been a leading facility development advisor to teams, leagues, universities, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations. Shortly before the millennium, Rick Horrow realized that he was spending a significant portion of his time doing media interviews to explain facilities financing, public-private partnerships, and infrastructure project implementation to the general public. What’s more, he realized he enjoyed it. What followed was a carefully orchestrated buildup of Horrow’s media portfolio, comprising regular weekly television and radio segments, his own national radio show,  and partnerships with such online media sources provide weekly branded columns.

Otherwise, he is everywhere at once, it seems, maneuvering behind the curtain of professional sports like the man making the marionette move…And he isn’t about to downshift.
