Christopher Hill has come back to the Sugar Land Skeeters, this time stepping into the president role.
Hill, a longtime Minor League Baseball executive and Missouri City resident, was vice president during the Skeeters’ inaugural season in 2012. He has also worked with the Wilmington Blue Rocks, a Kansas City Royals High-A affiliate; the Lake Elsinore Storm, an Anaheim Angels Single-A affiliate; and the Buffalo Bisons, a Triple-A affiliate for the Toronto Blue Jays, franchises.
“Coming home is a rare and exciting opportunity,” Hill said in a statement. “To live in such a dynamic community and now represent the best family-friendly venue in the area is an honor. We are going to have an exciting team, develop new and engaging promotions and most importantly—have fun.”
The March 27 announcement comes four months after former President Jay Miller announced in December that he would retire.
During his first stint with the Skeeters, Hill was responsible for all initial revenue generation for the club, including naming rights, skybox sales, ticket sales and sponsorship sales, with a focus on stadium founding partnerships.
“We are thrilled that Chris has agreed to lead our organization,” Skeeters owner Kevin Zlotnik said in a statement. “We talked to many candidates, but Chris stood out with both his vast minor league experience & strong ties to the Sugar Land community. On behalf of my whole family, we cannot wait to see Chris elevate this franchise to even further heights.”
