CEO and President of InfoSport, Inc.
Julie Lanzillo is the CEO and President of InfoSport, Inc., the company she founded in 1994, with a borrowed FAX machine, used computer and less than $4,000 in cash. She is responsible for the daily operations of InfoSport based in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
Her entrepreneurial spirit and interest in the sports business began at the age of 14, when she began promoting sports memorabilia shows in North Carolina in 1983, handling all negotiations with facilities, exhibitors and sports personalities.
She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1987-1991, where she received her B.A. in Psychology. During the summer of 1990, she served as an intern in the Sports Information Office at rival North Carolina State University. In the fall of 1990, after sending out over 600 unsolicited resumes, she received an offer to serve as an intern with SportSource, Inc., a sports publishing and baseball statistical agency in St. Petersburg, Florida. Upon returning to North Carolina in the Fall of 1991, Lanzillo joined the editorial staff of Baseball America magazine in Durham, North Carolina as an assistant editor. She remained there for a year, handling all photo editing for the general publication and overseeing research and compilation of their annual Directory and Almanac.
Lanzillo was recruited back to Florida to work for the Baseball Bluebook in 1992 as the Executive Editor, overseeing the introduction of new products and revamping existing ones, including the Basketball Red Book. After two years in that role, she moved to the Philadelphia area to be near family, and start her own sports publishing and marketing venture in 1994: InfoSport, Inc.
Since then, InfoSport has grown into an internationally-recognized entity in the sports business community. Through the development of the comprehensive sports combine, Lanzillo and the InfoSport staff have assisted countless aspiring professional athletes in receiving the exposure needed to acquire playing offers with professional teams around the globe in a variety of sports. Since 2009, InfoSport has narrowed its focus to soccer.
She has also served as the NASCAR brand manager for The Scoreboard and handled licensing negotiations for other trading card companies.
Having completed her M. Ed. in Sports Administration from Temple University in 2003, she has served as an adjunct faculty member at Temple University and Neumann University in their Sports Management departments in addition to the Organizational Leadership doctoral program at Wilmington University. She also developed a sports management certificate program for the Community College format and lectures on a variety of topics including sports marketing, sport governance, social media in sports marketing, event and facility management and marketing student athletes for college athletic scholarships.
