They will discuss being women in business based on their vast experience running the Haslam Sports Group, the Cleveland Browns and Pilot Flying J. Other topics will include their dedication to their communities in Cleveland and beyond and social justice work.
Dee Haslam and her husband, Jimmy, as owners of the Cleveland Browns and the Columbus Crew SC, have established three primary goals in leading the organizations: build a consistently winning team, take exceptional care of the team’s fans, and give back to their communities. Dee Haslam spent her business career in the television production business as CEO of RIVR Media, where she remains a partner.

She provides her communications, marketing guest and team member experience to HSG, the Cleveland Browns and Columbus Crew, in addition to her role with Pilot Flying J.
