A proven administrator with 18 years of experience in all areas of revenue generation, external affairs, staff management and leadership, Boo Corrigan is in his third year as Senior Associate Director of Athletics for External Affairs at Duke University.
Corrigan's chief responsibilities at Duke include the oversight of the Blue Devil corporate partnerships and the Marketing, Promotions, Ticket, Internet Operations, Sports Information and Video Services departments. In only two years at Duke, Corrigan has been responsible for the negotiation of multi-media rights to ISP, which increased annual rights more than 40 percent.
A supervisor of the 2009 NCAA Champion women's tennis and 2010 NCAA Champion men's lacrosse programs, Corrigan has been a part of five NCAA Championships at Duke in just two seasons. He is currently a member of the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Rules committee and the ACC Men's Lacrosse Committee, while serving on the Executive Budget Committee at Duke University.
Prior to arriving at Duke in August of 2008, he oversaw Notre Dame's corporate relations and marketing as an associate athletic director for five years. During his stint at Notre Dame, Corrigan spearheaded the redesign of its official athletics website and creation of 15-20 hours of original video content weekly. That resulted in a 35 percent increase in page views and unique users. Corrigan also worked directly with ISP Sports, CSTV, and NBC Sports from a sales and marketing standpoint.
Before joining the staff at Notre Dame, Corrigan spent nearly three years as the associate athletic director for marketing at the United States Naval Academy. He was responsible for turning the marketing department from a deficit to profit in his first year with full budget responsibility for the department. Corrigan also was intimately involved with the re-branding of the Annual Giving Campaign (The Blue and Gold), which led to an increase of 75 percent year over year donations.
He previously spent a year as a partner in Corrigan Sports Enterprises, an entrepreneurial sports marketing company, in the Baltimore area -- and also worked two years as an equity partner in mrgoodbucks.com, an e-commerce program that involved creation of affinity business relationships.
Corrigan also served two years as vice president of EMCEE Sports, a Baltimore-based sports marketing company with a focus on professional golf from 1997 through '99. In that role, he was responsible for a $2.5 million operating budget for the State Farm Senior Classic. He worked for Host Communications for two years, helping create relationships with various college and university athletic departments, and served as assistant director of marketing at Florida State from 1992-95.
The youngest son of former ACC commissioner and Duke graduate Gene Corrigan, he is a 1990 University of Notre Dame graduate with a degree in economics. Corrigan is currently obtaining a masters in education in sports leadership with an expected 2011 graduation. He and his wife, the former Kristen Aceto, are the parents of three children, Finley, Tre and Brian.
