General Manager, Australian Baseball League Franchise
|Entity:||Office of the Commissioner|
|Company:||Australian Baseball League|
|Department:||ABL - International|
The Australian Baseball League (ABL), a collaboration between the Australian Baseball Federation and Major League Baseball, is the national league of Australia with franchises in the major cities of Australia. The league utilizes a Minor League business model of providing fun, affordable family entertainment.
Reporting to the ABL’s Chief Executive Officer and the Team Advisory Board, and cooperating closely with the State Baseball Association, the governing body for the sport in the team’s state, the GM will run the ABL franchise, managing all facets of the business. This includes generating gate revenue through ticket sales, attracting corporate sponsors, marketing, brand building, community outreach, and managing operations (e.g. event management including game day promotions) to deliver an attractive product. The successful candidate will oversee the efforts of paid staff and volunteers and will be responsible for developing and maintaining additional revenue streams that support the franchise. The GM will serve as the public liaison of the club and will be in charge of attracting media coverage. The GM will also direct upgrades of the facility as well as develop and execute a long-term venue strategy.
The GM role is commercially focused and will have limited to no involvement with on-field personnel decisions.
