PRESS RELEASE – The Job Fair for possible Game Day employees is set for tomorrow in Werner Park’s Home and Road Clubhouses from 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., but the Storm Chasers have made several additions to help finalize the Front Office roster with two new full-time staff members and six new interns.
Rob Sternberg joins the Storm Chasers as the new Marketing and Promotions Manager. Sternberg will head all marketing efforts, oversee the Promotional Calendar, lead all in-game production and have involvement in on-field hosting. While he is new to Omaha, Sternberg spent the 2011 and 2013 seasons in the Royals Minor League system with Double-A Northwest Arkansas, as a Production Assistant and the Production and Public Relations Coordinator respectively. Sternberg hails from Oceanside, New York.
The Storm Chasers have welcomed back a familiar face in Danny Dunbar, who will work with the Storm Chasers sponsors and advertising partners as the new Sponsorship Sales Executive. Dunbar worked with the Storm Chasers in the Group Sales Department during the 2009-2012 seasons, but spent the last year and a half working in the Hotel/Hospitality industry in Omaha and Salt Lake City. Dunbar is an Iowa State graduate from Barnum, Iowa.
Every season interns play a vital role in the success of the Storm Chasers, and the team welcomes six new industry up-and-comers to the front office this season:
- Omar Rios (from Houston, Texas) – Finance and Merchandise Intern
- Logan Bowman (from Maquon, Illinois) – Group Sales and Ticket Operations Intern
