Buffy Filippell

Founder, TeamWork Online

WISE Woman of the Year in 2017, Buffy Filippell has been a part of many firsts in her career. And many of those firsts, including the founding of TeamWork in 1987, the first recruiting company to focus on sports executive recruiting, have created a legacy that reaches across nearly every professional sport, multiple collegiate programs and the leading live event producers in the world.

Filippell is one of the most honored and respected leaders and women in the sports world – known by many as the “Godmother of Sport Management” – having not only created TeamWork Consulting, but broadening the industry’s recruiting tools with TeamWork Online, as a first-of-its-kind mobile talent recruiting system focused on connecting employer to candidates in the business of sports and live events. She was the first female agent at IMG and one of the very first recruiters to focus on sports while at Korn/Ferry.
