PRESS RELEASE – The Traverse City Beach Bums are proud to name Jeremy Crum as their new General Manager. Crum assumed his position on November 1st and will work to build on the success of the 2010 season as the Beach Bums enter their sixth season.
“Jeremy has grown with us since our inception, working his way up from an intern in 2006,” said Beach Bums Managing Member/COO John Wuerfel. “As a family owned and operated organization, Jeremy’s promotion is indicative of the trust we have in him, trust he has earned through his hard work and dedication over the past five years.”
