Schuyler Hoversten (President and Co-Owner)
Schuyler Hoversten joins LA KISS as the organization’s inaugural Team President, overseeing all aspects of the business including sponsorship, ticketing, and merchandise revenues, in addition to managing the team’s brand identity and marketing efforts. Hoversten also oversees the LA KISS game day entertainment experience.
Prior to joining LA KISS, Hoversten oversaw the business development for the Los Angeles Dodgers for four years, tasked with increasing the team's revenue streams. Under his leadership, the Dodgers set new revenue records year-over-year, in addition to implementing first-ever brand entitlement and activation spaces at Dodger Stadium, including the United Club Suites, Lexus Dugout Club and Ketel One Lounge.
Prior to his work with the Dodgers, Hoversten served as VP of Business Development for the Colorado Crush Arena League Football Team for four years, responsible for all aspects of the team's business operations including ticketing, sponsorship, game day operations, marketing and promotions.
Given Hoversten’s ability to succeed in multiple roles, he became the youngest Team President in Pro Sports at the age of 32. As the team’s inaugural President, Hoversten was tasked with building the company from the ground up in a matter of months while simultaneously generating revenues. Additionally, Hoversten negotiated a TV broadcast deal with KCAL, attracted major corporate and strategic partners, created a limited edition series of bobblehead games featuring KISS’ likeness, and pioneered non-traditional game day entertainment initiatives. With his quick success, he was offered the opportunity to become co-owner of the team on June 4th 2014, making him one of the youngest owners of a professional sports organization.
Hoversten credits his quick rise to Michael Young, the Chief Revenue Officer of the LA Dodgers. The pair worked together for nine years in Los Angeles and Denver.
Hoversten lives in Beverly Hills and enjoys attending a wide variety of special events and other pro sports in Los Angeles.
