The work he did at GridIron Greats was rewarding and well needed. Ken has boundless energy and is highly ethical.

“Ken came into PPNA with very little direction and even less support and took a next to impossible task, left alone on an island, with little direction from management, and did nothing less than magic for the company!

Undoubtedly one of the best, if not THE best, salesmen the company will ever see. Driven is a simple word to describe the head down, non-stop charge that he lead alone to conquer the task at hand. Personable, professional, and a direly fast learner as well as a leader, he rises above all around him. Truly, a good man.” December 16, 2008

“You will meet no one more passionate and hard working than Ken Valdiserri. During the time we worked together, I was continuously impressed with his work ethic, desire to succeed and his competitive nature, which pushed him to be the best. Ken was responsible for the Sports Performance business at Power Plate and was outstanding at using his wealth of connections to help promote and sell our products. Ken is a work horse and a really good guy.” October 3, 2008

“Joining the Chicago Bears in 1994, I found a close knit group of individuals that strived to achieve the same goals and was quickly instilled into the culture by Ken Valdiserri.

Starting at an entry-level position, Ken immediately immersed me in the marketing efforts of the department allowing me to prove myself on the job. On my first day with the Bears, he asked me about my personal and professional goals – each day thereafter, Ken worked to help me achieve them.

His leadership, trust and friendship allowed me the opportunity within the Bears marketing department to create and develop profitable marketing efforts for an organization that lacked the stadium revenues and overall inventory that most other teams in the NFL had.

Finally, Ken provided me with the highest compliment by recommending me to his long time colleague and friend, the late Walter Payton, to assist on a marketing project Walter was working on. This trusted introduction allowed me a tremendous opportunity to grow and develop my personal knowledge in the sports marketing arena which directly translated to more “victories” within the Bears marketing department.

To this day, Ken is a colleague, associate and most importantly, a friend. I would recommend Ken in the highest degree in any role. His experience, relationships and drive are a testament to his years of success in the sports marketplace.” May 5, 2008

“In 17 years with Ken he stood out among our managers as a get-it-done, highly organized, person who developed ideas and people. Ken was a connector of people and departments inside our company and created and nourished outstanding partnerships with outside organizations.” October 17, 2007

“It is with great confidence and a tremendous amount of conviction that I write this letter of support for Kenneth Valdiserri. I have had the distinct pleasure of having Ken as professional colleague from 2000-2004, and friend since 2000. While working at ESPN 1000, I witnessed him create millions of dollars of new revenue that were critical to the station’s continuous growth and bottom line. In addition Ken was able to use his relationships to broker some of the station’s most notable and profitable marketing events in that time period. Most importantly this contribution was done out of the spotlight with no expectation of recognition. All in all, my work experiences with Ken allowed me to see first hand how business is executed at senior levels and how it can flourish through the power of relationships.” June 13, 2007
