Copperheads Promote Pair to Assistant GM Roles

Asheboro Copperheads LogoPRESS RELEASE – The Asheboro Copperheads have promoted two former team interns – High Point University graduate Leah Dansky and North Carolina State University graduate Max Kaufmann – to assistant general manager positions with the Coastal Plain League team.

Dansky assumes the role of Assistant General Manager/Marketing, while Kaufmann has been named Assistant General Manager/Operations.

Asheboro Copperheads Promote TwoDansky, 23, served an internship with the team in 2012 and upon graduating from HPU in May 2013 accepted a position in the Pugh Oil Company corporate office. Since joining Pugh Oil she has continued assisting with game-day operations for the Copperheads. Dansky, a native of Tolland, CT, earned a degree in Accounting at HPU with minors in marketing and sports management. While at HPU, she served in several capacities with the school’s baseball program. She was a team student manager, a facility and game-day volunteer, and an assistant concessions business manager. She was also student government treasurer for two years.

Kaufmann, a 22-year old native of Asheville, interned in Asheboro in 2013. He returned in May after graduating from NCSU with a degree in Sports Management and a minor in Spanish. He managed the team’s concession operation at McCrary Park this past summer and was also involved in facility and game-day operations. Since the season ended in mid-August, he has been performing duties for both the Copperheads and Pugh Oil. He will continue to have responsibilities with both organizations.

Former Assistant General Manager William Davis, a familiar face at Copperheads games since 2004, is relinquishing some of his duties with the team in order to meet increased responsibilities as Human Resources Director of Pugh Oil. He has served as assistant GM for the past six years, but prior to that was Co-General Manager of the team for several seasons. He will continue to have some operational involvement with the team, but in a more limited role.

“We are very fortunate to have had two very bright young people with the qualifications and sports management talents of Leah and Max already involved with the Copperheads,” said General Manager David Camp. “They both had a hand in helping the team earn the CPL’s Organization of the Year award in 2013, so bringing them on board in more official capacities was a logical step and one that we believe will be very beneficial to the future of the organization. Both of them have some great ideas about how we can move the franchise forward and expand our fan base. We look forward to their fresh ideas and enthusiasm.”
