CEO, Prodigal, Oklahoma City
Funk is a very competitive person and believes that most successful people are, as well. “If they weren’t competitive, they wouldn’t have the drive to succeed,” he says. “It’s a natural fit, then, for Funk to head a company that promotes and markets sports in the state and operates some of Oklahoma’s most competitive sports teams, including the Oklahoma City Barons hockey franchise. Funk also volunteers with organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics Oklahoma, Oklahoma City Youth Hockey Association and Police Athletic League Sports. He hopes to continue to provide the residents of Oklahoma City with world-class sporting events and entertainment that will make Oklahoma City a more exciting place to live.
