Since coming on board he has taken on engagements with the following: NHRA, NWSL, Navigate Research, Delaware North, Philadelphia Union, Gen.G, Twin Galaxies, Fanalytical, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, and others. As well, due to Prodigy’s continued growth, Rossetti will be spearheading our newest division, Ascension.

Prior to being acquired by Prodigy Search in September, 2017, Rossetti ran Ascension Sports Partners, which he founded in 2008.

Prior to Ascension Sports Partners, Rossetti was the Senior Vice President of another search agency within sports and entertainment. While there, Rossetti was responsible for the management and recruitment of executive searches for clients within the professional sports, entertainment, and experiential marketing fields. During his tenure, Rossetti’s team helped increase overall search revenues 250% from when he started.

Before stepping into the sports & entertainment recruiting space, Rossetti spent nearly five years with the nation’s largest Information Technology staffing firm, TEKsystems (a division of Allegis Group). At TEKsystems, Rossetti learned and honed his trade as a recruiter placing numerous technical candidates within the Southeastern and Midwestern marketplaces.

Rossetti earned his BA in Business Management from Wittenberg University and is a continuing member of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM). He speaks regularly at college and university campuses about working in the sports and entertainment industry and has moderated panel discussions the last two years at the Cynopsis Esports Business Summit, Nashville Predators Breaking Into Sports Career Day and the Columbus Blue Jackets Breaking Into Sports Career Day.

Rossetti has been involved with the Make A Wish Foundation of Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky since 2011 and has been a leader on their Regional Advisory Board since 2013. A former standout rugby player, Rossetti enjoys spending time with his family, exercising, cheering on the Clemson Tigers, and taking on an occasional obstacle course race. Dan currently resides in Mason, OH with his wife and their two daughters.
