Jeff Ewing named President of Prodigal

Prodigal LLC today named Jeff Ewing as its President.

Ewing joins the Prodigal staff after a lengthy career with the Bruno Event Team of Birmingham, Alabama working with their golf and motorsports divisions. Most recently as the vice president of the Bruno Event Team golf division, he served as the Championship Director of the recently concluded 2014 U.S. Senior Open at Oak Tree National Golf Club. During that event, he managed the sales, marketing, volunteer and operational aspect of the event by developing and maintaining relationships with the United States Golf Association (USGA), the host club, governmental agencies, civic organizations, municipalities and sponsors. During his tenure with the Bruno Event Team, Ewing worked with a total of 13 USGA championship events, serving as Championship Director for two.

“It’s an honor to be named to serve as president of Prodigal,” said Ewing. “During my three years here with the U.S. Senior Open, I learned that two of the qualities that make Oklahoma special is the passion of its people and their willingness to support events within their community. I look forward to beginning with Prodigal and continuing to bring quality events to the citizens of Oklahoma.”

With Prodigal, Ewing will oversee the day-to-day business and technical operation for all of the company’s events including: the Oklahoma City Barons, OKC Energy FC, Professional Bull Riders (PBR) events in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, the Bricktown 4th Fest and Wintershops at Myriad Gardens.

His industry experience in other markets gives him a unique perspective on how we can continue to succeed and grow as a company. He will raise the bar for what we strive to represent in excellence in Oklahoma each day.”

Ewing begins his work with Prodigal immediately.
