Tom Rooney & Taylor Swift at Heinz Field
Tom Rooney started TRSEG in 2003 after almost 30 years in the sports and entertainment business. He cut his teeth on the promotion business as marketing and P.R. director of The Meadows Racetrack near Pittsburgh where his innovative promotions landed in him the pages of Sports Illustrated twice and where he established records for attendance. He worked 10 years for the DeBartolo Corporation in Pittsburgh where he marketed the Pittsburgh Penguins and other indoor sports like lacrosse, soccer and football and where the in-house concert promotion company produced hundreds of shows. Then it was onto Pace Entertainment in Houston, TX where he was President of the Facilities Group that managed some 20 venues from Los Angeles to London. Pace became the largest single part of what is now Live Nation. He was President of the Pittsburgh Penguins for four years before realizing his dream, to start his own company.
