In that role, he consistently exceeded sales goals and successfully created and managed a first-of-its-kind Premium Department Sales Representative program. The program has since provided employees with a critical pathway to rise through the ranks not only at AEG, but also across sports and live entertainment – two of the most competitive industries in the country Prior to that, Brewster got his start at AEG as a sales manager where he worked alongside the sales team that generated a record-breaking $100 million in premium revenue during the 2014-15 season for the first time ever in STAPLES Center history.
A life-long sports fan and a devout UNLV Rebel, Brewster began his career in sports at the Los Angeles Dodgers as an account executive for the Season Ticket Sales department. It was in this role where his passion, dedication and talent for sales was realized.
Brewster attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in recreation and sports management from the William F. Harrah College of Hospitality. Born in Los Angeles, CA and raised in Las Vegas, NV, Brewster currently resides in Redondo Beach, CA with his wife, Knarik, and their two-year-old daughter, Fiona. When Brewster isn’t busy meeting with prospects and thinking of innovative ways to generate new business, he enjoys spending time with his family at the beach, experiencing new local restaurants and breweries and attending sporting events as a fan.
