('88) Managing Vice President, SF Giants
Russ Stanley has been with the San Francisco Giants since 1989. He is responsible for the ticket sales of all events at Oracle Park and the team's spring training facility, Scottsdale Stadium. He was a key player in developing the team's charter seat program as well as the Giants’ secondary market and dynamic pricing rollouts. Stanley and his dedicated team of sales, operations, client relations and luxury suites staff have implemented many progressive ideas that have improved Giants fan experience and satisfaction. During his tenure, the team has developed many fan-friendly programs to alleviate the pressure for season ticket holders who must purchase and use 83 game tickets. Whether it's reselling tickets online, relaying via email, finding ticket partners or donating tickets, Stanley's team has built the infrastructure to do it all electronically. The Giants' dynamic pricing program, where the team changes prices based on demand, has changed the ticketing business. Stanley's team of ticket and sales professionals continues to be at the forefront of the sports ticketing world. The SF State graduate came to the Giants after eight years at Marine World, in both Redwood City and Vallejo.
