Front Office Farewell!

Each week, we’ve been posting great segments titled “Front Office Friday,” where you’ve gotten the opportunity to get to know our front office staff a bit better. As you have noticed, last week we did not post a new segment. The reason being, on Friday we said farewell to one of our longest tenured front office staff members, Ryan Burke, who has accepted a position with the New York State Hospitality & Tourism Association as Membership Sales Manager.

The new position will allow Ryan to spend more time with his wife Alyssa, and nine month old son, Lucas. We are all extremely excited for Ryan and his new opportunity!

Ryan began with the ValleyCats as an intern in 2006, joining the full-time staff in 2007. Since that time, Ryan served as a member of the ValleyCats sales team, while also assisting with Community Relations. Growing up in Troy, Ryan’s passion towards the ValleyCats was expressed in his dealings with each of his clients and all of the ValleyCats fans, who are going to miss him just as much as we are.

We wish Ryan nothing but the best as he begins the next chapter of his life!

Good luck Ryan you always helped me out. Will miss you. Message to Rick “I better be presented with a bobble head of Rick.”

From a long time fan – Ryan, you rock! Thank you so much for your help and support over the last few years. I know I speak for many ValleyCats folks you will be missed. Good luck in your next venture and to your wonderful family.

Thanks Ryan. You were incredible.
