Peak Sports MGMT is a young sports management firm, based in McKinney, Texas. It was founded by Ryan and Cara Holloway in November 2012. Since it's conception, Peak has grown to oversee the corporate sponsorships at several universities, and has also launched an event management sub-company (Peak Events). Here at Peak, we have found a niche on the collegiate side within the DI FCS, DI mid-major and high performing DII markets, and have had great success thus far. On the event side we oversee all sponsorship, ticket sales, team selection, and operations for the Frisco College Baseball Classic and the Round Rock Classic.
