Becki Civello Joins Next League’s Executive Team as Chief Operating Officer 

NEW YORK, NY  - October 3, 2022 - Next League, led by a team of technology experts with decades of success in the sports industry, today announced its first executive promotion. Becki Civello has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer. In this role, she will oversee the business operations of the company.   

Civello joined Next League earlier in 2022 as VP, Strategic Operations. Prior to joining Next League, she spent nearly 10 years at OMNIGON / Infront X. In her most recent role there, she oversaw the global commercial function including strategy, business development, account management and marketing. During her tenure, she also built and managed relationships with key client accounts, developed the account management practice and formalized the commercial operations function.

“I am thrilled to announce Becki’s promotion,” said David Nugent, Co-Founder and CEO, Next League. “Having had the pleasure of working with Becki for over 10 years, I can honestly say she is one of the hardest working and most well respected professionals in the business. At Next League, we strongly believe in hiring from within and promoting those who deliver exceptional work while demonstrating strong leadership abilities. Becki has played an integral role helping us lead the company to where it is today and I look forward to seeing her continue to flourish in this new role.”

“I am proud to be part of the Next League team and am grateful for this opportunity to contribute to the overall operations of the company,” said Civello. “We’ve had a lot of great successes in a short period of time and I look forward to continuing that momentum into 2023 and beyond.”

Civello recently wrote an article, released around Title IX’s 50th Anniversary in June 2022, titled “The Impact and Role Sports Has Had on My Life.” In it, she cited a statistic from a recent EY report that 94% of women in C-Suite roles played some form of sport growing up.

“Sports has, and will continue to play, an important role in my life,” said Civello. “I am humbled to now count myself as part of that exclusive group. I am grateful for the opportunities sports has given me and look forward to continuing to give back to something that has given me so much.”
