Score Sports named Joe Flannery as chief executive officer. Current President and CEO Kevin Mahoney will remain with the company for a transition period to ensure continuity.

Most recently, Flannery was the EVP at Topgolf Callaway Brands, responsible for the company’s global apparel and softgoods businesses. In a career spanning three decades, he has also held executive roles at branded consumer companies, including Adidas, Nike/Nike Bauer Hockey, The North Face, Newell Brands, and Canadian Mountain Holidays.

“Throughout his noteworthy career in the sports and apparel industry, Joe has developed a reputation of consistently delivering outstanding results for the businesses he has led and the communities those businesses serve,” said Austin Ramos, chairman of the Board at Score Sports. “We are thrilled to now have him on our team as we look to maintain Score’s accelerated growth while continuing to drive the company’s mission of positively impacting young athletes across the country.

“We want to thank Kevin for his leadership during his tenure at Score. He was hired by the founders in 2019 to successfully transition their business, and family legacy, to a new ownership group, ultimately finding a trusted steward in Brand Velocity Group. He maintained the business during the devastating global pandemic, and in the years since, has grown the company’s revenue to heights it has never previously reached. We appreciate his continued care for the Score family and wish him great success in his future endeavors,” continued Ramos.

Flannery joins the designer, manufacturer and seller of sports uniforms, apparel and equipment at a time of “great momentum for the company,” having recently announced its new corporate headquarters in Torrance, CA, as well as partnerships with Babe Ruth League Softball and GoFundMe.

“I am incredibly inspired by Score’s impressive legacy and look forward to building upon its mission-driven approach to serving its customers and communities as we take the business and its impact to the next level,” said Flannery. “I am grateful to Kevin and the rest of the Score team for positioning the company for continued growth and success.”

Mahoney added, “I joined Score in 2019 to prepare the company for new ownership, transition it through that process, and further accelerate our ability to positively influence communities across the country. I’m proud of what we as a team accomplished, and thank each Score team member for their continued hard work and dedication. I look forward to seeing the exciting things Score will accomplish from here.”
