It’s a unique opportunity to put your stamp on what will be a tremendous turnaround over the next few years.
With new fully committed ownership last Season, the Admirals made great strides and have assembled an outstanding staff that is highly motivated to take the Admirals to the next level.  With the Covid-19 pandemic and new challenges the Professional sports industry faces, the Admirals seek a creative, highly qualified leader in Sales to drive revenue while cultivating our sales team and establishing a culture of collective betterment for all.
