Founder & Head Coach
Lindsay’s experience in the sports marketing realm began in 2004 with her stint as an intern with the Anthony Munoz Foundation and the Marvin Lewis Community Fund (MLCF). Working for both organizations at first, Lindsay joined the MLCF in 2005 when Coach Lewis formed his own 501 c (3). Lindsay helped Coach Lewis and then Executive Director, Sharon Thomas, build the organization from the ground up, taking it from an initial $10,000 donation from the Bengals, to one million in donations in a short time. She was instrumental in the development of fundraising and marketing strategies and program development.
When Ms. Thomas was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, Lindsay’s duties increased significantly, and when Ms. Thomas’ hard-fought battle ended two years later, Lindsay was named Interim Executive Director, filling the shoes of her friend and mentor. During her seven months at the helm, she added the inaugural Marvin Lewis Youth Football Camp and the Learning Is Cool program, decreased organizational expenses, and kept her eye on the ball by maintaining a focus on quality.
When an Executive Director was named, Lindsay assumed the role of Assistant Director, focusing primarily on relationship building with nearly 100 partner organizations and fundraising through major special events. She cultivated the Marvin Lewis Golf Classic into one of the most premiere events of its kind; her successful decision to shorten the outing to 14 holes allowed for a more relaxed and enjoyable outing and even helped raise more money at the post play auction! As it turns out, happy golfers spend more money! Another of Lindsay’s key events, Football 101, was named “Best One-of-a-Kind Experience” in Cincinnati Magazine’s “Best of the City” Award. The annual event gathers 450 very energetic women at Paul Brown Stadium for a night of football, fun and fundraising and has become a “must attend” event for the female football fan!
Lindsay’s attention to detail, hard work, creativity, and energy combine to make her an individual who won’t stop until the job is done. She has an extreme passion for event planning and places very high expectations on herself and her team. She works tirelessly to come up with new ideas to make her events stand out. Lindsay loves to think outside the box and does not like the word “no”. She believes If there’s a will, there’s a way!
Mrs. Reisert is a proud graduate of the the University of Dayton with a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Marketing and minoring in Communications. While studying at UD she was also a member of the varsity women’s softball team. She lives in Evendale with her husband and children.
