Huddle Up Group has announced a partnership with the sports tourism and events start-up Bobcat Strategies, founded by sports event industry veteran Vince Trinidad. The partnership will include specific project work where Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Bobcat Strategies will supplement the industry expertise of Phoenix-based Huddle Up Group within specific strategic projects.

“We have a longstanding partnership with Vince and feel that his industry expertise, specifically in the area of event production and execution, complements our team’s strong suits of strategic planning and organization development,” said Jon Schmieder, founder and CEO of Huddle Up Group. “With the projects we have ahead of us, we felt that this was a partnership that we needed to secure, so we wanted to jump on board as one of Bobcat Strategies’ founding partners. We look forward to a great working relationship with Vince and Bobcat.”

Trinidad, formerly the executive director of the Tulsa Sports Commission, has formed Bobcat Strategies as a consulting business that specializes in organization management, partnership development and strategic planning for nonprofits.

“Bobcat Strategies is excited to partner with one of the sports industry’s most impactful organizations,” said Trinidad. “I look forward to adding to the successful projects that the Huddle Up Group has completed for destinations and sports organizations across the United States. Their team is first-rate and has an incredible understanding of the industry. I plan to use my nonprofit experience with various organizations to provide strategies and solutions for nonprofits across the country.”
