Dan Furman promoted to President of 502Circle NIL Collective

Paducah Bank Louisville Advisory Board Member Dan Furman Assumes New Position Supporting Louisville Athletes

Dan Furman, a member of the Paducah Bank Louisville Advisory Board, has been named the new President of the 502Circle NIL Collective for the University of Louisville. Dan formerly served as Associate Director of Development for the Louisville Cardinal Athletic Fund. Dan’s new mission will be very similar to his former one, only now his work will be on behalf of a new organization. “It’s still all about fans and donors,” Furman commented. His message will change only slightly. Now he’ll share how Louisville supporters can support athletes financially through NIL opportunities.

“It’s different but in the same sense, it’s the same message,” Furman said. “We’re here to impact the lives of student-athletes and provide opportunities for kids to change their lives and their families’ lives. When you really break this thing down, for years in college athletics, we’ve been preaching as development officers that we’re here to make an impact on student-athletes. And what better way to do it than by directly impacting student-athletes through NIL and providing them with opportunities that grow their knowledge of industry and community and city and get them involved with nonprofits and individuals in the city that could employ them when they’re done with their time at U of L.

“There’s a Pandora’s box of ideas and concepts that could grow from what they’re doing here in the community at this point in time and at this point in their life. It’s our job to sit down with donors and pitch that emotion and make sure that they understand like this isn’t just some ragtag idea, right?”
