Endeavor hires former NFL executive Todd Kline to sports talent group

Todd Kline, the former chief commercial officer for the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins, has joined Endeavor as senior vice-president of sports talent and property sales.

Based in New York, Kline will oversee all sales work for Endeavor’s sports talent clients, in addition to premium property sales work and naming rights.

While at the Dolphins, Kline helped secure a $250m (€225m), 18-year naming-rights deal with Hard Rock International, which was the third-most lucrative naming rights partnership in the NFL at the time.

Kline previously served as AEG Global Partnerships’s senior vice-president for media and partnership sales.
