“I’m honored to join Matador and thrilled to bring my 20 years of experience in PR and events – specifically my strong relationships with the UFC and 10 years of work exclusively in combat sports – to this company,” said Wenk, Matador partner and CMO. “I’m excited to work with Tom and Tony, two accomplished executives, in the sport that I love so much and for the athletes and organizations that make it the most exciting live event in the world.”
Tom Hoppa, partner and CEO of Matador said, “Matador is already a respected name in entertainment, and has produced many successful events including the PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL 2013 sold-out West Coast tour. We also recently produced the UFC International Fight Week 2014 live concert featuring Papa Roach, P.O.D., and LIT. With my 15 years of experience in live events, artist representation and business development, I’m excited to connect our resources with the massive combat sports market.”
