LOS ANGELES (AP) -Longtime sports executive Dennis Mannion was hired Wednesday as chief operating officer for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The 48-year-old Mannion has been senior vice president/business ventures for the NFL's Baltimore Ravens the past eight years. Before that, he spent 16 years working for the Philadelphia Phillies and later worked as senior vice president/business ventures of Ascent Center, owners of the NBA's Denver Nuggets, the NHL's Colorado Avalanche and the Pepsi Center.
``We are delighted to bring Dennis to the Dodgers during these exciting times,'' vice chairman and president Jamie McCourt said. ``He allows us to accelerate our business operation because of his vast and diverse sports background and reputation for innovation.''
Mannion will oversee the Dodgers' traditional business operations including corporate sponsorships, ticket sales, retail operations, concessions, broadcasting, and other revenue streams. He also will coordinate the club's integrated marketing efforts.
