The Seattle Mariners today announced four promotions to the organization’s Executive Leadership Team.

“The Mariners are fortunate to have a number of experienced, talented individuals whose creativity and strategic leadership have helped the organization innovate and improve not just our business operations but the way we engage with and provide excellent services to our fan base,” said Kevin Mather, Seattle Mariners President and Chief Executive Officer.

Lisa Winsby, who joined the Mariners in November 2016 as Vice President of Human Resources, has been named Sr. Vice President, People and Culture. Winsby oversees all aspects of human resources management including strategy development and implementation, talent management and acquisition, learning and development. Prior to joining the Mariners, Winsby spent 10 years leading human resources for Bartell Drug Company.

Cory Carbary, in his 15th season with the Mariners, has been named Vice President of Ticket Sales and Service. Originally hired in 2004, Carbary has made significant contributions to the organization both as a top-performing sales representative and a strategic leader directing business development efforts. Carbary was instrumental in restructuring and growing the ticket sales and services operation, and in establishing new programs designed to provide flexible and innovative options for fans, including the recently announced subscription-based Mariners Ballpark Pass. In his new role, Carbary will oversee all aspects of ticket sales operation, including season tickets, group and premium sales strategy, and also assume responsibility for the sales and retention strategy and fan engagement.

Gregg Greene, who started with the Mariners in 1998 as a Marketing Coordinator, has been named Vice President of Marketing. Greene played a pivotal role in the Mariners transition from the Kingdome to then Safeco Field, helping reshape the Mariners fan experience at the ballpark as well as how the ball club positioned itself in the community. He will be responsible for the club’s marketing, advertising, promotions, giveaways and game entertainment. In addition, in his new role, Greene will take on the responsibility of all digital initiatives including developing content opportunities to enhance the Mariners brand. Throughout this career at the Mariners, Greene has been a key contributor to innovative promotions such as the King’s Court, the special seating section for Felix Hernandez’s starts, and the Junior Mariners program that connects young fans across the Pacific Northwest to Mariners Baseball.

Malcolm Rogel, who is entering his 21st season with the Mariners, has been named Vice President of Ticket and Event Services. Rogel joined the Mariners as a ticket office attendant and progressed through the ranks to take on leadership roles including supervising and managing day of game ticket office staff. In 2006, Rogel took on responsibility for operating the Mariners parking garage. In his new role, Rogel will assume responsibility for management of food and beverage and the relationship with the Mariners hospitality partner Centerplate. Over the years, he has been instrumental in leading the organization’s adoption of technology applications that have improved business operations and enhanced fan experience. His latest initiatives are mobile ticketing and a test pilot of cash-free transactions for parking and concession sales at T-Mobile Park, both of which are being introduced for the Mariners 2019 season.
