In 2016 GoVision completed the Colossus TV at Bristol Motor Speedway — the largest freestanding outdoor center hung video board in the world. GoVision was acquired by Learfield Communications in 2016 and Curtis and his management partners reacquired the GoVison business from ANC in 2023.

Curtis is a partner in, and Chairman of, Groundswell Experiential Marketing and The Well Data Agency. The Curtis’s are also partners in Locals Only Vodka and Crockett Row Urban Village.
