Travis Pelleymounter – VP, Ticket Sales and Service Tampa Bay Lightning
The 2017-18 campaign is Travis’ 6th with the Lightning and his 20th in professional sports overall. He has spent time in both the NHL and NFL throughout his career in two different markets.
Travis’ career in sports started in the NHL with the Tampa Bay Lightning. It was a short stay as an entry level sales rep before he took an opportunity to start with a new franchise, the Atlanta Thrashers in 1998. He was promoted to Group Sales Manager after two years and spent three seasons total with the Atlanta hockey club.
Travis then transitioned to the NFL in 2002 as a Ticket Sales Manager on the first sales staff in the history of the Atlanta Falcons. He held this position for three seasons before being named Premium Sales Manager overseeing the sale and service of all club seats and suites for the Georgia Dome where he stayed for 7 seasons.
In 2012, Travis relocated to Tampa to become the Director of Season Ticket Membership for the Tampa Bay Lightning and oversee the service and retention of all Season Ticket Members. Last Spring, Travis was promoted to Vice President, Ticket Sales and Service. He is responsible for all things related to the sale and service of Season Ticket Membership accounts, working with a staff of approximately 25 sales team members. To date, the Lightning have over 14,000 memberships sold and 6,500+ accounts to service.
Community involvement is important to Travis as well. He is a proud graduate of the Leadership Tampa Class of 2017 and he enjoys volunteering regularly through the CHARGE program at the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Travis is a graduate of Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. He and his wife Sina are the parents of three young children (Juliana – 8, Jack – 6 and Gia – 4).
