President of Dodgers Business Enterprise & Managing Director of Guggenheim Baseball Management
Tucker Kain enters his seventh year as CFO of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Managing Director of Guggenheim Baseball Management after leading the group's efforts to acquire the club in the largest team sports transaction in history in 2012.
In addition to his responsibilities as CFO, Kain was instrumental in navigating the execution of the Dodgers' 25-year agreement with Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable), which included the creation and operation of the team's regional sports network, SportsNet LA. He also oversees the Dodgers' Global Sports Venture Studio, an expansion of the team's sports and technology venture which launched in 2015 as the Dodgers Accelerator. The Global Sports Venture Studio is an ongoing initiative and works primarily with growth-stage startups to lay the groundwork for effcient, risk-controlled innovation through analysis, diligence, and business/creative strategy combined with startup sourcing, engagement opportunities and investment.
Previously, Kain was a Vice President at Guggenheim Partners in New York City, working in the corporate credit group overseeing an investment portfolio in excess of $2.0 billion. Kain, a 2014 selection for the Sports Business Journal's "Forty Under 40 Award," grew up in Cleveland and received his B.A. degree in Economics from Williams College. He and his wife, Ali, reside in Brentwood with their daughter Palmer.
