Martie Cordaro President and General Manager  

Martie Cordaro

Martie Cordaro is President and General Manager for the Omaha Storm Chasers, Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. In 2018, Cordaro will celebrate his twentieth season in Minor League Baseball and has been with Omaha since 2007. Cordaro, the 2013 Baseball America Minor League Executive of the Year, has previously been honored with the Omaha Sports Hall of Fame Community Service Award and the Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce Business Leader of the Year.

Cordaro was intimately involved in the research, negotiation and project management to build a ballpark for the franchise in Sarpy County, thus keeping Triple-A Baseball in the Omaha metro area. He led the process of the successful rebranding and renaming of the Omaha franchise and has headed the nine highest Omaha total revenue seasons. The Chasers have truly found a home in Sarpy County as more than three million fans have enjoyed games and events since the park opened in April 2011. In addition to orchestrating the naming rights partnership with Sarpy County-based Werner Enterprises for Werner Park, Cordaro led the organization's efforts to host the 2015 First National Bank Triple-A All-Star Game. The team won back-to-back Triple-A National Championships in 2013 and 2014.

With community at the forefront of Cordaro's daily efforts, the team was named 2016 Ballpark Digest's Charity Team of the Year. In 2013 and 2017, the team was the Pacific Coast League's nominee for Minor League Baseball's John Henry Moss Community Service Award, given to a club "that demonstrates an outstanding, ongoing commitment to charitable service, support and leadership within their local community and within the baseball industry". The Chasers were also honored as the PCL's nominee for MiLB's Larry MacPhail Award in 2014. The franchise was bestowed the Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year in 2009 and again in 2015. Omaha won a prized Veeckie from ESPN the Magazine in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

The Pacific Coast League's executives voted Cordaro the 2011 PCL Executive of the Year. Ballpark Digest, the leading website covering the business of baseball, named Cordaro and former team president Alan Stein the baseball industry's 2011 co-executives of the year. The Kansas City Royals honored Cordaro as their 2009 recipient of the Matt Minker Award, which recognizes an outstanding minor league affiliate employee. Cordaro also was among the honorees for the Midlands Business Journal's "40 under 40" recognizing entrepreneurs and business executives under the age of 40 for 2009; he also was a Suburban "Under 40" honoree in July 2011. In 2012, Cordaro was honored by his high school alma mater, Ruston High School, as its Young Alumnus of the Year.

Cordaro came to Omaha from Battle Creek, Mich., where he spent the 2005 and 2006 seasons as General Manager for the Southwest Michigan Devil Rays (Single-A, Tampa Bay). Prior to his stint at Southwest Michigan, Cordaro spent the 2003 and 2004 seasons as Director of Sales for the Birmingham Barons (Double-A, Chicago White Sox). Cordaro got his start in professional baseball with the West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx (Double-A, Chicago Cubs) of the Southern League as a Group Sales Representative in 1999. A 1998 Louisiana Tech University graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing, Cordaro served three seasons as Director of Marketing for his alma mater's baseball program. Cordaro also served as color analyst for radio broadcasts. He concurrently worked as general manager of the property management department for Today's Realty, Inc. Cordaro is a 1991 graduate of Ruston, La., High School.
