It is a pride to be able to be part of this family and this work team, and to be able to contribute with my experience in order to continue growing as a company.”

“I want to personally thank the Atlanta Braves for the many years I was able to work for them. They helped me grow my career, saw my family grow, and were a second family when I needed them most. It seems fitting being able to witness them as World Series Champions the same year my next chapter begins.
