Happy New Year!
I hope that each of you have a great 2010. I hope to see many of you at the Bradley Center over the next several months as we push toward an appearance in the Calder Cup Playoffs. We’re going to need loud, enthusiastic crowds to help get our guys where we need to go.
The new year brings a few changes to our organization. I’d like to thank Colleen Clexton, our outgoing Manager of Ticket Operations, who is beginning a new opportunity in Texas with Ticketmaster in the near future. Colleen has been a vital part of our growth in her four years with us. Her expertise in managing the essential ticket operations duties of our team has been invaluable. She has also been a fun part of our staff and a good friend. Best of luck to Colleen!
Taking Colleen’s place is Brian Martens. Brian has been our Senior Account Executive in Ticket Sales for the past year and a half and has been with our team for the past six years in ticket sales. He is a very smart young man with a big future in the sports world and this will be a key development in his career. He’s a graduate of UW-Parkside. Good luck to Brian!
Heather Wojciechowski is now a full-time employee with the Admirals as our Marketing Assistant. Heather just graduated from UW-Milwaukee (my alma mater) and brings fantastic work ethic and a real grasp of our mission as an organization to entertain our fans. She has been with us in a part-time role over the last year and served as an intern prior to that. Good luck to Heather!
Finally, and I am remiss in not having done this sooner, I would like to formally welcome Kim Salli to our staff full-time. She joined us full-time in October as Ticket Operations/Guest Relations Assistant and also handles all of our merchandise. She has done a phenomenal job of transforming our merchandise sales into something special. Kim will also be assisting Brian in many of his duties. Kim’s a Carthage College graduate. Continued good luck to Kim!
As you can see, we continue to evolve as an organization in an effort to bring you high level entertainment and customer service to make your experience with the Admirals the best that it can be.
