Texas A&M-Commerce

With a number of key brand expansion opportunities on the horizon for Lion Athletics – led by our historic September 11th football game at Globe Life Park – we know it is a unique time to catch lightning in a bottle,” said Texas A&M-Commerce Director of Athletics Tim McMurray. As we pursued a partner that could assist us in maximizing opportunities for engaging our alumni, fans and friends in the vibrant Dallas-Fort Worth market, Taymar’s strategic acumen jumped off the page to us. It is a thrill to lock arms with Mark Dyer and his team as we advance our sales and engagement efforts. We also offer sincere gratitude to Leona Marketing Group for guiding us through this unique process.”
