JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - The Johnson City Cardinals are excited to announce the hiring of Trey Gilreath as Account Executive with the organization. Gilreath will replace Zac Clark, who accepted a position with the Asheville Tourists as Sponsorship Services Manager.
"Trey is an individual that came highly recommended from our colleagues over at ETSU and we are thrilled to add him to our staff here in Johnson City," added Cardinals GM Tyler Parsons. "He has an incredibly bright future and has already hit the ground running. I have no doubt he will be a great asset to our staff and he brings a relentless drive. We couldn't happier to add someone of his character and skill level."
Hailing from Bluff City, Tennessee, Gilreath is a graduate of Sullivan East High School and he played collegiate baseball at Virginia Intermont and Point University (GA) before transferring to East Tennessee State to finish his degree.
Prior to joining the Cardinals, Gilreath spent time with National Scouting Report as a Regional Scout, and was most recently working in External Relations with ETSU Athletics. With the Cardinals, Gilreath will handle corporate sales, on-field promotions and gameday staffing.
"It's great being part of a championship organization. An organization where players like Yadier Molina started their Hall of Fame career," said Gilreath. "Prior to my arrival the Cardinals generated a lot of momentum with attendance records and championships. I believe something special is being built here. It's great for the community, and it's a great time to be a Johnson City Cardinal!"
Gilreath also spent time with Velocity Sports in Bristol, TN and now resides in Bluff City.
The Johnson City Cardinals have won four of the last seven Appalachian League Championships and they kick off their 2017 season on June 22nd when they host the Bristol Pirates.
