Jacque Skowvron, BSBA '09; BA '09

Manager of Communications, DICK'S Sporting Goods

Jacque joined DICK’S Sporting Goods in 2014 where she currently manages the external communication and public relations for the Company.

Jacque earned her B.S. in marketing and communications, graduating magna cum laude from the University’s five-year dual degree program between Pitt Business and the College of Arts and Science.

As an undergrad, Jacque followed her passion for sports and interned with Pitt Athletics, FSN Pittsburgh (now ROOT Sports) and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Upon graduating, Jacque moved to New York City after she was drafted into the National Football League’s management training program.

Jacque spent five years at the NFL, working in a number of roles including a five-month stint in the NFL’s London Office as her final rotation in the League’s program. Her last three years with the NFL were spent working in the Marketing department where she focused on the League’s NFL PLAY 60 and other corporate social responsibility campaigns.

Though she loved her time in New York City, Pittsburgh called her back home and in 2014, Jacque took a communications job with DICK’S Sporting Goods.

Since joining the Company, Jacque has led PR efforts for various areas including the launch of the athleisure line, CALIA by Carrie Underwood, and the first-of-its-kind women’s boutique, Chelsea Collective. Jacque has also elevated the PR efforts for the Company’s new store openings, marketing campaigns and the work of The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation.

Jacque currently resides in Downtown Pittsburgh and enjoys being an avid Pittsburgh sports fan. She was named one of “WHIRL’S 2016 Women in Business” by WHIRL Magazine.
