Mike Kohler, who has played a key role in building ISP Sports' successful sales and marketing efforts for the University of Houston the past four years, has been named General Manager of the company's staff at Arizona State.

Kohler, who also worked for ISP at the University of Pittsburgh prior to becoming General Manager of its Houston sales office, begins his new duties with the Sun Devils this week.

"We are excited to have Mike as leader of our team at Arizona State," Ben Sutton, Chairman and CEO of ISP, says. "Mike has incredible energy and passion for his work, and I know that will be evident to everyone within the Sun Devil family and to our many clients as he undertakes this new and very important role with our company."

Prior to joining ISP, Kohler spent three years as Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing and Promotions at Brown University, where he supervised marketing efforts for a 37-sport program. He also has corporate sales and promotions experience at San Diego State and the University of Denver.

Kohler received two master's degrees from Denver, one in Sports Management and one in Higher Education and Student Development. He earned his undergraduate degree from Cal-Santa Barbara.

Now in the first year of a multi-year agreement with ASU, ISP markets a variety of corporate sponsorship opportunities involving Sun Devil sports, including live play-by-play game radio broadcasts, game publications, signage in on-campus facilities and corporate hospitality events. The company also serves as sales representative for TheSunDevils.com, the official athletic department website.
