JON J. FRANKLIN
Jon J. Franklin cut his World Pro Skiing teeth as a 12 year old carrying Jean Claude Killy’s jacket down Boyne Mt. Fifteen years later, he served as Killy’s USA agent. While at IMG, he helped bring Chrysler and Coors in as US Pro Ski Tour sponsors, with clients Phil and Steve Mahre racing under the Coors banner. Ultimately Jon sold and managed Cafe de Colombia’s Ski World Cup title sponsorship in a multi year multi million dollar mega deal. Later, Jon worked with Barilla Pasta and World Champion Bode Miller and brought three headgear sponsors to Olympic Gold Medalist Julia Mancuso. Following stints as Olympic Boxing Chief and CEO of a global combat league, Jon is back home in ski racing to manage the resurgence of the World Pro Ski Tour.
