SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, PROJECT DEVELOPMENT
Veteran sports facility management and construction development executive Jack Hill rejoined the Texas Rangers as Senior Vice President, Project Development in November 2016. Hill, who was instrumental in the construction of The Ballpark in Arlington (now Globe Life Park in Arlington) in the early 1990s, oversaw the construction management and development of Globe Life Field, which opened to rave reviews in March 2020.
Hill, who also managed the construction of American Airlines Center in Dallas and AT&T Stadium in Arlington locally, also works with The Cordish Companies on the Texas Live! development and is involved in other Rangers projects, including the repurposing of Globe Life Park in Arlington in the winter of 2019-20.
Hill originally joined the Rangers organization in August 1991 as Vice President, Ballpark Development and served as the principal development manager for a $191 million project, which included The Ballpark in Arlington, a 140,000 square foot office building, and a youth sports park. The project was completed on time and on budget when it opened in April 1994.
From 1995-98, Hill was the Vice President of Development for Hammes Development Corporation and was centrally involved in the planning of Miller Park in Milwaukee. He was the principal manager for Hillwood Development while managing the construction project for American Airlines Center from 1998-2002. Hill then spent three years as Associate Superintendent of Construction for the Dallas Independent School District.
In 2005, Hill joined Blue Star Development and the Dallas Cowboys and spent the next five years overseeing the construction and development of Cowboys Stadium. Once the $1.2 billion multi-purpose facility opened in 2009, he oversaw all operations of the building for its first three years.
More recently, Hill was Project Executive for the San Francisco 49ers’ new stadium in Santa Clara, California. Levi’s® Stadium, a $1.3 billion sports and entertainment facility, opened in July 2014 and served as the site of Super Bowl 50 in February 2016.
Overall, Hill has spent over 35 years in the construction and development industry and is a graduate of Texas A&M University. Jack lives in Dallas with his wife, Amy, and their 17-year-old twins, Gracie and Jake.
