“This is just a great spot” for seeking sponsorships, says Craig Thompson, CEO of the Event Authority.
. ..With the America’s Cup finals still two years away, the business arm of the sailing event has plans to grow its San Francisco-based staff to 120 people and expects to sign for its new office space in the next few weeks.

The America’s Cup Event Authority — which is in charge of generating revenue for sailing’s most prestigious contest — will hire as many as 120 people in its San Francisco office over the next two years. It has no employees now.

Those new hires will be in charge of lining up sponsorships, televising the races, marketing, merchandise sales and the myriad other commercial aspects of the 34th America’s Cup.

The Event Authority, headed by Chairman Richard Worth and CEO Craig Thompson, is looking for office space by Piers 27 and 29, near the intersection of Sansome Street and the Embarcadero, which is close to the start-finish line for the 2013 competition.

That space needs to be large enough to hold about 30 people over the next few months for the event authority’s first wave of hires.

The Event Authority also has an office in London with 30 people, some of whom may be transfered to San Francisco.

San Francisco was awarded the right to host the next America’s Cup on Dec. 31, 2010, a victory for city officials who hope the event will pump 8,000 jobs and about $1 billion into the local economy.

San Francisco was awarded the right to host the next America’s Cup on Dec. 31, 2010, a victory for city officials who hope the event will pump 8,000 jobs and about $1 billion into the local economy.
The Event Authority was created late last year and has been at work drumming up leads for sponsorships. It is seeking $270 million to cover the cost of the America’s Cup Finals and all the events leading up to it.
To make inroads with sponsors, the authority will work with a nonprofit called the San Francisco America’s Cup Organizing Committee, a volunteer group of about 80 business people, politicians and other race boosters, who are to help open doors for people who can write big checks.
The authority recently resigned luxury goods seller Louis Vitton to be the lead sponsor for the Challenger Series, a collection of races that will determine who will take on Oracle Racing, the America’s Cup defender owned by Oracle Corp. CEO Larry Ellison.
Thompson said there will be six to eight top-level sponsors and six second tier sponsors. And he expects some Bay Area companies will be among those firms using the America’s Cup to promote their own brand and services.
“Fortunately, this is just a great spot” for America’s Cup to seek out sponsors, Thompson said of the Bay Area. “You have global headquarters of a lot of big, big companies. Obviously the high-tech industry is here. But there is a lot of banking, just a lot of global companies headquartered here.”
He declined to say who he is talking with to line up sponsors, but San Francisco officials have said Bay Area-based firms including Visa Inc., Wells Fargo & Co., URS Corp., PG&E Corp. and Google Inc. have had talks with America’s Cup organizers.
With some big jobs ahead of it as the America’s Cup host, San Francisco this week lined up city department heads who will make sure tasks like infrastructure improvements and regulatory agency clearance are completed.
But already the city’s race backers are hoping that 2013 won’t be the last time the America’s Cup is held on San Francisco Bay. A repeat victory by Oracle Racing could boost those chances since Cup rules state the victor can pick the place and time of the next event.
Thompson fueled hopes that San Francisco may play host to the America’s Cup after 2013 when he told a gathering in City Hall, “Who knows, maybe this will be the first of several such events in this great city.”
“If Oracle wins again, you could probably safely assume they would want to have it here again,” said America’s Cup spokeswoman Stephanie Martin.

From this article (http://blog.sfgate.com/cityinsider/2012/01/08/local-hiring-will-play-role-in-americas-cup/)

I caught this piece:
"Notifications for open positions will be posted on the America’s Cup’s Business Connect website. In addition, the Event Authority will also send e-mail blasts with hiring updates and upcoming opportunities. Anyone wishing to receive that information should e-mail workforce@americascup.com."

I'm looking forward to the Cup. Very excited to see how San Francisco embraces all the action.
