AUGUSTA, ME (SEPTEMBER 18, 2020)—The Maine Principals’ Association (MPA) has signed a multi-year partnership with Teall Properties Group (TPG), a multimedia and marketing management company for high schools, as the exclusive agent for strategic business partnerships, athletic sponsorships and multimedia rights.
Under the partnership, TPG will work with the MPA to develop business relationships to benefit the Association, and in turn its member schools. TPG also will represent the MPA in negotiations for opportunities related to the regional and national recognition of the Association’s championships across its extracurricular activities.[ED1]
“Adding the MPA continues to strengthen our presence in the Northeast,” TPG CEO Mike Wolfert. “By utilizing our other partnerships in the region, we will see tremendous benefit for the MPA, their member schools, and all their students.”
TPG has hired sports partnership veteran, Jenna Raizes, as General Manager. Raizes most recently spent two years as the General Manager of Wildcat Sports Properties at the University of New Hampshire with Learfield IMG College and six years in the front office of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats minor league baseball team.
“We are delighted to work with TPG and thrilled to have a sports-minded and community-focused talent in Jenna leading the way for the MPA,” said Mike Burnham, Executive Director of the Interscholastic Division of the MPA. "We place a very high value on building relationships with the brands and organizations who wish to support the MPA, our member schools, and the state’s student-athletes. We look forward to engaging in valuable, meaningful partnerships for many years with TPG.”
The MPA joins a group of fifteen properties associated with TPG, including the District of Columbia State Athletic Association (DCSAA), Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA), National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), NFHS Network, New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association (NHIAA), New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA), North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association (NCISAA), the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA), the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference (OVAC), the Rhode Island Interscholastic League (RIIL), the South Carolina High School League (SCHSL), the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA), the Vermont Principals’ Association (VPA), Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA), and the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL).
