US-based game day producer Emily Livacari has joined KOJO Sport, kick-starting her journey working with Cricket Australia and the ICC T20 World Cups.
KOJO connected with Livacari earlier this year, while she was working as Stadium Producer at the 2019 Australian Open.
“Emilys diverse international experience producing more than 300 professional sporting events, across basketball, tennis and ice hockey, plus her depth of knowledge and understanding of large-scale and fast-moving experiences, will be a real asset to our local productions,” said Stephen Lord, KOJOs CEO.
“The core purpose at the centre of our sports presentation programs is to captivate audiences, and Emilys passion for fan engagement and highly immersive experiences makes her a great fit for KOJO Sport.
“Emily will play a vital role as we bring an international perspective to our Australian based clients, and also make a move into the vibrant world of the US sports industry.”
Livacari will be responsible for taking KOJO Sports Australian success in game day presentation and production across the Pacific, while also having input into the strategic delivery of KOJOs Australian work.
“I’m excited to join the KOJO team, to challenge myself with new types of sporting events in Australia and see how my US experience can translate to local sports production,” she said.
“I love managing live sports, seeing the flow of the game, the buzz of the stadium and bringing the players, team and fans closer together. I look forward to the opportunity to enhance KOJOs sports presentations in Australia and drive new business in the US.”
