|Parney||Vice President & COOfirstname.lastname@example.org|
Todd "Parney" Parnell serves as the Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for the Richmond Flying Squirrels, the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. In that role, he oversees all aspects of the Flying Squirrels' day-to-day operations in Richmond. He is the 2013 Eastern League Executive of the Year.
With his guidance, the franchise completed a 1.5 million dollar renovation of The Diamond, where they opened Eastern League play in 2010. During their inaugural season, the club quickly established itself as a leader in the community, while smashing corporate and ticket sales expectations. With "Parney" at the helm, the Flying Squirrels led the Eastern League in both overall and average attendance, welcoming 463,842 (6,626) fans to The Diamond. Through innovative marketing and branding initiatives, the club posted record-breaking merchandise sales, and was awarded Logo of the Year for 2010 by Ballpark Digest.
Upon the completion of their inaugural season, the franchise was recognized as the Richmond Business of the Year by the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce (GRCC). "Parney" also currently serves the Richmond Chapter of the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation Board of Trustees, as well as the Richmond Police Athletic League Board of Directors. Due to his flamboyant nature and wealth of experience in professional sports, "Parney" has also become one of the most popular speakers and guest lecturers in the region.
Prior to joining the effort to return baseball to Richmond, "Parney" served as the President of the Greenberg Sports Group (GSG), which provides management, consulting and marketing services to the sports industry across the country. GSG also manages the overall operations of Minor League Baseball's State College (PA) Spikes (Short-A/New York-Penn League) and Myrtle Beach (SC) Pelicans (A/Carolina League). "Parney" held the title of President for both franchises.
2014 will mark Parnell's 25th season in minor league baseball. In addition to his roles with both the State College and Myrtle Beach franchises, he spent seven seasons (2002-08) as the General Manager of the Double-A Eastern League's Altoona Curve, a position he relinquished in December, 2008, after the sale of the franchise from Curve Baseball LP to the family of Robert F. Lozinak.
During his time as the Curve's General Manager, the club set numerous single-game and season attendance records, continually re-invested private money into capital improvement projects at Blair County Ballpark, and helped the franchise gain national stature as one of the most creative and innovative teams in professional sports. The Curve won the prestigious Larry MacPhail Promotional Award in 2004, the 2006 Baseball America Freitas Award as the top Double-A franchise and added the highest honor bestowed annually upon a Minor League Baseball club, the John H. Johnson President's Trophy, in 2006. Altoona became only the 11th franchise to receive all three major awards, and was the first team to accomplish the feat in less than three years.
Prior to joining the Curve, the North Carolina native was the Vice President and GM of the Single-A Kannapolis (NC) Intimidators (formerly the Piedmont Boll Weevils) in the South Atlantic League from 1997 to 2001. During his tenure in Kannapolis, the club set attendance records (either overall or average) in each of his first four seasons and made the playoffs in 1998 and 2000. For his efforts, Parnell was named the 1999 South Atlantic League General Manager of the Year.
In November 2000, owners Larry Hedrick, Bruton Smith and Dale Earnhardt changed the team name from the Piedmont Boll Weevils to the Kannapolis Intimidators and switched their major league affiliation from the Philadelphia Phillies to the Chicago White Sox. In the club's first season with its new image, the Intimidators again set franchise records in both single-season and per-game attendance, while becoming one of minor leagues baseball's top merchandise sellers.
"Parney" began his minor league baseball career during the 1990 season when he joined the Eastern League's Reading Phillies as the club's Director of Sales and Marketing. He was later promoted to Assistant General Manager, a position he held through the 1996 season.
"Parney" graduated from Messiah College in 1988 with a degree in physical education and a minor in business. He has two daughters, Lindsay (19) and Samantha (16).
