Dr. Linda K. Moore, a native of Quincy and a 1981 graduate of Quincy University, started her career in higher education as an admissions counselor and athletic recruiter. Moore continued her career in college athletics as the Associate Commissioner for the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and later as the Assistant Athletic Director at St. Louis University before moving into event management. Dr. Moore managed or consulted on a number of professional sport and Olympic projects including the St. Louis Steamers, St. Louis Cardinals, U.S. Cycling Federation, Demetrious Johnson Foundation, and the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. In October 1996, Moore joined ESPN Productions Inc. where she led the X Games franchise until her retirement in January 2016. From participant services, competition management, and more recently as Sr. Director, Business Operations & Planning, Moore led the financial, legal, and business aspects of the franchise.
