The Carolina RailHawks are in search of an experienced ticket sales executive to continue and enhance their significant attendance growth. The role of Vice President/ Director of Ticket Sales is charged with leading the fan development and ticket sales department.
“This role is one of the key leadership positions in our organization,” said RailHawks President Curt Johnson. “The opportunities for professional soccer in the Triangle and North Carolina are limitless. Our goal is to be the most respected and successful pro soccer organization in North America and this hire will be one of the keys to us reaching our goal.”
Current Director of Ticket Sales, Evan Morris, departs following a dynamic three seasons that saw season ticket sales grow over 205% and individual game sales rise over 125%.
Johnson continued, “We will be sad to see Evan depart at the end of the season. He has been a driving force in the short and long term successes and sustainability of the RailHawks organization. The entire RailHawks family would like to thank him for his contributions and wish he and his fiancé, Amanda, all the best as she pursues a tremendous career opportunity in California.”
Morris will continue in his role through the end of 2013 season, ensuring a smooth transition in all ticket related matters. After the transition, Morris will join his fiancé in California, where she is a member of the MLS’s San Jose Earthquakes marketing department.
“I have enjoyed my time with the RailHawks and will miss the staff, partners, and ticket holders,” said Morris. “The organization was able to accomplish a lot in a short period of time and I know it will continue to have tremendous growth. I would like to thank Traffic Sports USA and Curt Johnson for giving me this opportunity.”
