President, Baseball Operations
Andrew Friedman enters his fourth season as the Dodgers' President of Baseball Operations after being named to the post on October 14, 2014.
Under Friedman's leadership, the Dodgers have won three straight divisional titles since 2015 (five in a row overall), while advancing to the National League Championship Series in 2016 and winning the club's first NL pennant since 1988 last year. The club's .591 winning percentage (287-199) in three seasons under Friedman is the second-best three-year run in Los Angeles history, behind only a .603 mark (290-191) from 1961-63.
During his time with the Dodgers, Friedman has overseen the development of one of baseball's top ranked farm systems, positioning the organization for the long-term success, and also reorganized and built out the team's front offce. Baseball America recognized these efforts by naming the Dodgers as its 2017 Organization of the Year, honoring the team for its success from top to bottom.
Friedman previously served as Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations of the Tampa Bay Rays where, despite overseeing one of the league's lowest payrolls, he led the Rays to four postseason appearances, including two division titles (2008, 2010), in nine seasons from 2006-14. During Friedman's time in Tampa Bay, the Rays posted the franchise's first winning season and won the American League pennant in 2008, when he was named Sporting News' Executive of the Year. After finishing below .500 in each of their first 10 years of existence, the Rays finished above the .500 mark in six consecutive seasons under Friedman from 2008-13. Friedman joined the Rays in 2004 and spent two years serving as director of baseball development.
Prior to his career in baseball, Friedman was an analyst for two years with New York City-based investment firm Bear, Stearns & Co., Inc., and spent three years as an associate for the private equity firm MidMark Capital.
Friedman received a baseball scholarship to Tulane University, where he played outfield for the Green Wave and graduated with a bachelor of science in management with a concentration in finance. Friedman and his wife, Robin, have two sons, Ethan and Zachary, and a daughter, Sadie.
