SOUTH PARIS — The Oxford Hills Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Saturday will feature Super Bowl CEO and Auburn native Allison Melangton.

Melangton served as CEO and president of the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee from 2008 to 2012, and in September 2012 she returned to Indiana Sports Corp. as the president.

Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis featured the Super Bowl Village, which drew more than 1.1 million people to downtown Indianapolis; $154 million of investment in the city’s Near Eastside through the Legacy Project; more than 8,000 volunteers serving in a variety of roles; and community, youth and green initiatives that impacted hundreds of thousands of individuals.

Melangton served on the Indiana Sports Corp. staff from 1994 through 2008, most recently as Indiana Sports Corp’s senior vice president of events. She oversaw Indiana Sports Corp’s bid selection process and directed Indiana Sports Corp’s bid presentations for those events.

She has directed numerous national and international events, including Olympic Trials, World Championships, NCAA Women’s Final Fours, and Big Ten Basketball Tournaments. In this role, Melangton led the bid effort that won Indianapolis the right to host Super Bowl XLVI.

Melangton is originally from Auburn, and returns frequently to visit family and friends. She is a graduate of Colorado State University with a bachelor of arts degree in sports administration. Prior to joining Indiana Sports Corp., Melangton directed national and international events for 11 years for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics. Melangton also worked at eight Olympic Games, the last five as an associate producer for the gymnastics broadcast by NBC Sports, the most recent being the 2012 summer games in London. She has won four Emmy Awards for her work.
