Executive Director


Mark Jeanneret was promoted to Executive Director of the Erie Sports Commission in July 2018, after having previously served as the organization's first Events Director since June 2013.

Since being elevated to the leadership role, Jeanneret has guided the organization to the top-three performing years in its 11-year history, while also navigating through the challenges of the pandemic. In the first five full years under his direction, the Erie Sports Commission hosted/supported a total of 328 events, generating an estimated economic impact of $86.3 million.

As the organization’s first Events Director, Jeanneret quickly made his mark in the sports tourism industry, increasing the number of Sports Commission hosted/supported events from 19 in 2013 to 59 in 2017. Jeanneret's work was critical to Erie's selection as host for several high-profile events, including the 2018 Ice Breaker Tournament, presented by LECOM, the 2021 NCAA Women's Frozen Four (at which he served as Co-Chair of the local organizing committee), and many other world, national and state-level championship events.

Jeanneret has also been an active member of the PA Sports Executive Committee, having served four years as Treasurer and is entering his second two-year term as Chair.
