Tommy Benizio, CEO, Texas Revolution

Team majority shareholder Tommy Benizio spearheads the Texas Revolution organization as the team’s CEO following a four year stint as the Indoor Football League’s first Commissioner. Over the course of his time as Commissioner the league grew in both strength and stability.

Prior to being named Commissioner, Tommy was the owner and operator of both the Intense Football League and the Odessa Roughnecks for five seasons, winning Franchise of the Year and Executive of the Year awards for his work with the team.

Tommy brings over two decades of experience in the operation of professional minor league sports franchises, getting his start in the early 1990’s as a player for the ECHL’s Roanoke Valley Rampage. Following his brief professional hockey career, he took a position in the front office of the ECHL’s Roanoke team. From that point on he worked hard at every position he held, while earning promotions through professional hockey teams in Dayton, OH, Baton Rouge, LA, Tucson, AZ, El Paso, TX, and Knoxville, TN. During his second stint with the team in Roanoke, Tommy served as a founding member of the af2 while operating both the hockey and football franchises.
