Hannibal Cavemen General Manager and Field Manager Greg McVey announced changes to the structure of the front office staff.  Deron Johnson will remain with the organization as the Director of Marketing and Operations and Debbie Walden will serve as the Director of Community Outreach for the 2015 season. The changes in the front office staff come as John and Judy Civitate transition out of their roles as General Manager and the Director of Operations to pursue other business opportunities.

Johnson was on staff last year as the Director of Marketing and Sales and will have a larger role with the club this year by becoming the Director of Marketing and Operations.  He will continue to lead the organization’s marketing and sales efforts leading up to the playing season.  As the season begins, his role will transition into an operational mode and he will be the lead administrator on game nights.  He will oversee several aspects of game day operations including  ticket sales, security, game night promotions, special events, field preparation and staff supervision.

Walden will take over as the Director of Community Outreach after spending the past four years as the organization’s Host Family Coordinator.  Her primary responsibilities will include  host family coordination, community outreach programming, concession volunteer program, concession logistics and ticket operations.

The Cavemen open the Prospect League season on the road at Springfield and play their home opener on May 30th against Terre Haute. For more information or ticket inquiries call (573) 221-1010.
