Ben Chulick begins his fifth year at Colorado State. He joined the Rams on Aug. 2, 2007.
Chulick heads the university's athletic marketing and promotions efforts. In addition to strategic planning of CSU's branding and ticket sales goals, he coordinates entertainment at home football, basketball, volleyball and softball games, as well as unique events such as the Rams Superstars Competition, and logistics for the department's exciting fan-interactive area at Hughes Stadium, Ram Town.
In 2011, he served as point person in conceiving, recruiting and hiring a new outbound ticket-sales team for the athletic department.
He also creates and oversees the Rams' promotions and promotional items. His office includes licensing and advertising and serves as the chief liaison to the university's band and cheerleaders. He also works with the media relations office to oversee the official Web site, CSURams.com.
Chulick coordinated game entertainment at the first and second rounds of the 2008 and 2011 NCAA men's basketball tournaments in Denver, working with bands and cheerleaders from all eight teams.
He joined the Rams from the 2006-07 Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA. In three and-a-half years as the marketing manager for the Cavs and Quicken Loans Arena, he was responsible for all promotional items, assisted with marketing goals and branding initiatives, and managed game-night activities. He also wrote copy for radio, television, Web site and in-game advertisements.
Prior to his time in Cleveland, Chulick worked in the Mountain West, serving more than five years in the marketing department at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. At UNLV, he held the titles of assistant marketing director (2002-04), marketing assistant (1999-2002) and marketing intern (1999). There, he assisted in all aspects of the Rebels' advertising, promotions and game-entertainment efforts, specifically with football and men's basketball. He also coordinated several of UNLV's community relations programs.
Chulick launched his career at Michigan State, directing MSU's Student Alumni Foundation's fan club for Spartan basketball, The Izzone, from 1996-98. The club, which included a special section at the Breslin Center, was named after head coach Tom Izzo. It included group activities and road trips, and game-day newsletters.
A 1999 graduate of Michigan State, he owns a bachelor's degree in parks, recreation and tourism resources, with an emphasis in commercial recreation.
Born in Detroit, he was raised in Las Vegas, where he graduated from Bishop Gorman High School.
