Guest Drinker

Buffy G. Filippell

Over 40,000 men and women have a job in sports through Buffy G. Filippell – either through her executive search practice, TeamWork Consulting, or through her online executive recruiting software system, TeamWork Online. Buffy Filippell is the President of TeamWork Online and TeamWork Consulting. In 1987, Buffy launched a first-of-its-kind business, a retained executive search firm specifically geared towards recruiting middle to senior level executives for the sports industry. An Indiana University graduate, Ms. Filippell started her career with Wilson Sporting Goods and later worked as an agent at IMG. Buffy resides in Shaker Heights, Ohio.

Started in 1999 mirroring her executive search process in a digital format, Buffy started TeamWork Online.  It is the recruiting software of choice for over 750+ sports organizations. TeamWork Online is the recruiting system of choice for the majority of teams in the NFL, NBA, MLB, and the NHL, as well as International Speedway Corporation, IMG, Major League Soccer and 20+ National Governing Bodies, plus many minor league sports leagues. TeamWork Online is the #1 (non-sponsored) link on Google for “sports jobs.” Over 8,000 online candidates have been hired through TeamWork’s network in 2011 (www.teamworkonline.com), representing an increase of 60% over last year, with only an increase of 20% new clients this year and 2 leagues in lock-out.   The number of online hires this year represents 25% of the total number of people hired online in 12 years.   The sports business has been hiring and all of the sports recruiting is being routed through Ohio!
