Milwaukee Admirals President Jon Greenberg announced today that John W. Bitter has been promoted to Senior Director of Ticket Sales, Nate Harker has been promoted to Director of Group Sales and that Kurtis Hardy would be hired as Account Executive.
“John and Nate have been fantastic performers for our sales staff,” said Greenberg. “They both are very deserving of these promotions and I am sure that they will continue to excel with their customers, both current and future. I am also happy to welcome Kurtis to our staff as he brings energy and creativity which I know will be well-received by our fan base.”
Bitter started with the Admirals in 2003 as an Account Executive, a title he held until he was promoted to Director of Ticket Sales in 2005. In his new position as Senior Director he will oversee the ticket sales department, while still selling season and group tickets, and managing accounts. Prior to his time with the Admirals he attended and graduated from Ripon College, interned with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and worked in marketing for ASI Technologies.
Harker, a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee alum, previously held the position of Group Sales Manager since his start with the Admirals in 2005. As the director he organizes large group outings for games, oversees the group sales program, coordinates fundraisers and specializes in corporations, youth groups and youth hockey programs. Last year he coordinated a Girl Scouts group that purchased over 9,100 tickets.
Hardy, a 2011 Ripon graduate, specializes in season ticket sales and group outing accounts. While at Ripon he majored in Business Management and minored in Communication. Before starting with the Admirals he accumulated extensive experience in the sports side of sales working for the Green Bay Gamblers, 2010 PGA Championship, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and the Tampa Bay Rays.
