Sam Kennedy became President of the Boston Red Sox on October 16, 2015. As President, Kennedy has oversight over the club and its operations. A native of Brookline, MA who grew up within walking distance of Fenway Park, Kennedy, 42, joined the Red Sox as Vice President of Corporate Partnerships in 2002. He was among the first wave of executives the current ownership group brought to Boston from the San Diego Padres, where Kennedy had worked the previous six years. Kennedy immediately distinguished himself, playing a key role in the revitalization of the Red Sox brand and the dramatic growth of the team’s financial base through the creation of new revenue streams. Kennedy was also intimately involved in the preservation and transformation of Fenway Park and the transformation of the ballpark experience.
Prior to assuming the role of club President, Kennedy served as Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer from September 2009 to October 2015. While in that post, he oversaw the team’s general business matters including ticketing (sales, operations and service), corporate sponsorship, broadcasting, marketing, social media, advertising, Fenway Enterprises (non-baseball activities at Fenway Park), and all client services.
In 2007, Kennedy was named one of the Boston Business Journal’s 40 under 40 Award recipients, which recognized 40 of the Boston’s best and brightest young professionals. In 2008, 2010 and 2013, Kennedy was selected as one of Sports Business Journal’s Forty under 40 Award recipients and inducted into the publication’s Hall of Fame.
