A Charleston, S.C., native with experience in Tampa Bay has been named the executive director of the 2009 Super Bowl.

Reid Sigmon, who served as assistant director of the Tampa Bay Final Four Organizing Committee in 1998 and as director of operations for Tampa's Super Bowl XXXV Task Force, will assume his new duties on April 30.

His responsibilities will include ensuring proper infrastructure is in place to produce this high-level event, coordinate hotels, transportation and security detail, organize numerous Super Bowl Host Committee special events, generate sufficient sponsorships, meet fundraising goals and ensure the community is prepared for the NFL to host Super Bowl XLIII.

"Reid Sigmon is an experienced pro that knows his way around a Super Bowl," said Frank Supovitz, senior vice president of special events for the National Football League, in a release.

For Super Bowl XXXIX, Sigmon served as vice president of operations for the Jacksonville Super Bowl Host Committee where he focused on integrated aspects of transportation, parking and visitor movement, including ground, marine and air transport.
