Spectrum Sports Management is owned by Mike Bone, he is a graduate of UC Irvine, with a degree in economics. He has been involved in owning and operating sports marketing companies in Southern California for twenty-five years and is an acknowledged leader and expert in sponsorship packaging and sales for teams, organizations and individual athletes.

Mike has based Spectrum Sports Management on the strong belief that we should always work hard for the project and the client and great results will follow. This philosophy has helped steer Spectrum Sports into new markets and new projects ranging from marketing Olympic Governing Bodies; to managing and directing some of the largest runs in Southern California; to directing the Northern Trust Open on the PGA TOUR’s West Coast Schedule. It is with this emphasis of surrounding himself with the best talent and always placing the client’s priorities first that has helped build Spectrum Sports into the leading event marketing company in Southern California in just a few short years.

Quick Look:

  • Married to Bonnie, who he met in college, and has two sons – Andy and Matt.
  • Will take any opportunity to spend a day fishing on a river, or sitting in the stands watching an Angel’s baseball game
  • Favorite time is spent watching one of the boys play water polo or baseball and watch them compete.

Triumphant moment:

  • Watching the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992 while a close friend, and client, won the Bronze medal in the Decathlon on a broken foot. Being with him, his family and my wife was a very moving and special time.

Favorite Quote:
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
