Orioles Introduce New Senior Management Team



After launching an organizational transformation in baseball operations nearly one year ago with the hiring of Executive Vice President and General Manager MIKE ELIAS, the team now confirms the leadership vision off the field. The Orioles have hired T.J. BRIGHTMAN as Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, and promoted JENNIFER GRONDAHL to Senior Vice President of Community Development & Communications, and GREG BADER to Senior Vice President of Administration & Experience. The trio join LISA TOLSON, who was named Senior Vice President of Human Resources prior to the season, as the senior management team in charge of the club’s day-to-day business operations. 

The comprehensive process to reposition the club’s baseball operations began last year when Elias was hired to reconfigure the baseball operations department to reflect the industry’s state-of-the-art practices surrounding scouting, player development, and the use of analytics across all areas. These practices have helped the Orioles’ organizational talent ranking rise this season from 22nd to ninth according to Baseball America. To complement this new approach in building baseball operations, the addition of business and community leadership will create enhancements in business operations.
