Inside the SIY Front Office – Jillian Wright
What is your title and your job responsibilities?
My job title at the Staten Island Yankees is Manager, Sponsor Services. My job responsibilities include fulfillment and planning of 15-20 sponsorship packages including elements such as signage, promotions, events, hospitality, etc. I work directly with the sponsors to create new innovative promotions, events, etc. to maximize goals of the sponsor’s investment for their sponsorship.
Some new responsibilities for this year have included prospecting, preparing proposals and cultivating new sponsor relationships with our Senior VP of Corporate Sales.
What do you enjoy most about working for the Staten Island Yankees?
What I enjoy the most about working for the Staten Island Yankees is being part of a great front office staff who works tirelessly throughout the off-season to make every aspect of the season from entertainment, to sponsorship and promotions be enjoyable to the fans from Opening Day until the last game of the season.
Who is your favorite Staten Island Yankees player of the past?
Even though I’ve been here for two seasons…it’s cool to see the players such as Mason Williams, Tyler Austin and Saxon Butler from just the past 2 years move up the Yankees minor league teams. I really enjoyed the 2011 Staten Island Yankees team….my first season here and we won the NY Penn-League…as a life-long baseball and Yankee fan, it was a great experience/season.
