Meet Laurie Dimakos... working in the sports marketing industry for over 20 years, passion, creativity, and dedication to the project is ALWAYS our mantra. Laurie's sports marketing career started with figure skating, where she worked with Olympic Athletes organizing professional tours around the country, but learned the "art of the deal" at International Sports Management where she connected corporate executives and athletes at high profile sporting events, and earned the title of Vice President of Sports Marketing. After a successful run at ISM, LD was recruited to start a high profile client portfolio in Los Angeles for Stirling Sports and Entertainment Group. This opportunity allowed Laurie to build a large athlete network and increase her event portfolio to include multiple Super Bowls, The Masters, PGA Championships, NBA Allstar Games, and many others. Returning to Chicago in 2007, LD Sports Group and Lovely Dove Productions were formed, and we are proud to produce high-profile events in Chicago and around the country for top athletes and our favorite charitable organizations.
