IOA Becomes Presenting Partner of MSE Business League

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Monumental Sports & Entertainment (MSE) today announced IOA as the presenting partner of the MSE Business League. IOA is currently the 11th largest privately held insurance agency in the United States according to Insurance Journal and the 27th largest insurance broker in the United States according to Business Insurance magazine. The MSE Business League is a program designed to foster an environment of networking and future business growth between our current business partners.  IOA will also receive in-arena digital and print advertising at Verizon Center as part of their partnership.

“It is always a pleasure to work with an organization that understands the value of businesses advocating for each other in the marketplace,” said IOA chairman and co-founder John Ritenour. “We have found great colleagues at the Monumental Sports & Entertainment group and look forward to the future of our partnership.”

IOA currently works with more than 50 teams in the NFL, AFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, AHL, ECHL and NCAA.

“The Business League program is a natural extension for encouraging more business-to-business networking opportunities in our local community,” said Monumental Sports & Entertainment vice president of corporate partnerships Patrick Duffy. “Plus it provides an added benefit to our partners not usually seen in today’s sponsorship marketplace.”

The MSE Business League program began in June 2013 and currently features more than 800 members. Featured events for the league have included keynote speakers, insider panel discussions and networking events with Monumental Sports & Entertainment’s partnership group, head coaches of the Washington Capitals, Mystics and Wizards, and local area business leaders.
