Inside the SIY Front Office – Kerry Atkinson

ImageWhat is your title and your job responsibilities?

I am the Senior Vice-President of Corporate Sales and am responsible for securing new sponsors and promotional partners while working with corporations who have supported the Staten Island Yankees in previous seasons

What do you enjoy most about working for the Staten Island Yankees?

I like being able to be very creative and customizing marketing partnerships that meet the needs and objectives of both current and new sponsors and intricately weaving them into our fan-friendly and entertaining environment at the Ballpark.

Who is your favorite Staten Island Yankees player of the past?

Based on how I watch them now perform in the big leagues, I would have to say Brett Gardner and Robinson Cano. 

Describe the experience fans will encounter at Richmond County Bank Ballpark this summer.

I am excited to see how our fans enjoy some of the new features that our corporate partners are bringing to the team and the park, specifically our Western Beef BBQ Pit, our new ShopRite Friends and Family Pack, our in-seat promotion with Domino’s Pizza, the College of Staten Island student section and in-game promotions like our Rab’s Country Lanes Human Bowling. Based on everything I have heard since arriving, I think that the fans will enjoy many of the new concepts we have developed in the off-season…with many more still to come!
