South Shore CVA Staff

John Lynk

Manager of Sports Development


John Lynk

I started my career as a social studies teacher and coach. I worked in this field for 11 years throughout the region. I then went into sales and band marketing for a regional beverage company. After 18 years in the industry, I was looking for a change and accepted the Manager of Sports Development position at the South Shore CVA in 2019. I look forward to "selling" the region to bring amateur and professional sporting events to northwest Indiana. 

I enjoy running, biking, lifting, swimming, kayaking, hiking, fishing and hunting in my free time as well as enjoying a night out with my wife, family and friends. I reside in Crown Point with my family - Susan, my wife and my two sons, Johnny and Grayson.
