Zach is a former graduate of University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in both Marketing and Human Resources Management. He has been in the sports and events industry since college, starting out booking concerts and events at the UW-Madison Student Union. After college, Zach worked at the Alliant Energy Center, working with events ranging from 10 to 10,000+ attendees.
Zach found his calling in the sports industry when he moved to Milwaukee to work for MKE Sports & Entertainment – the former owners of the Lafayette Aviators. Zach worked his way up from Ticket Sales to Corporate Partnerships before moving to Lafayette to manage the business side of the Aviators. Zach stayed with the team through the transition to new, local, ownership and currently serves as the General Manager. When not at Loeb Stadium, Zach can be found cheering on Wisconsin sports, spending time outdoors, or enjoying the latest craft beer (oftentimes, all three at once).
Business Development Manager
Tracy is a former graduate of Indiana State University where she earned her Master’s in Recreation and Sports Management. She has accumulated remarkable Infield Marketing experience in both the sports and graphic arts industry. With a Bachelor’s in Media Arts and Animation from the Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg, IL already under her belt, the only thing that was truly missing was the sound of the bat crack in the distance.
Prior to joining the Lafayette Aviators, she has demonstrated her efforts in production management by assisting other reputable organizations, such as: The Game Haus, Indy Fuel Hockey, Orange County Novastars, Indianapolis Colts, Chicago White Sox, and Chevrolet's Indy Car and NASCAR Series. When she is not trying to impress upon her resume, she focuses her time on being active. Running, fencing, archery, and kickboxing are only a few of things that she tries to make time for. A Chicago native, she now resides with her son in Lafayette.
