Danny Barth, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, applauds Pete Winemiller, Senior Vice President, Guest Relations, and his team for being instrumental in helping to foster relationships with fans throughout Oklahoma and make their organization one of the most fan-centric teams in professional sports.
I'm proud to have the opportunity today to talk to you about the Oklahoma City Thunder and our Senior Vice President of Guest Relations, Pete Winemiller. When the Thunder family came to Oklahoma City, we knew that the success of our team depended on our ability to integrate ourselves into the community. We place a high value on community outreach and fan interaction.
Under the leadership of Pete Winemiller, the Thunder set out with the goal of becoming the most fan-centric organization in professional sports. Pete and his staff were instrumental in helping the Thunder achieve the number one ranking this past year in ESPN Magazine's Ultimate Fan Rankings.
But one thing that makes Pete so valuable to our team is that he understand guest relations is not an area where you can call the job finished. Every day, every game, all the details have to be right to make sure the fans continue to have the best experience possible. Pete and his incredible eye for those details and open heart, truly appreciates and goes out of his way to initiate fan feedback.
Now, with a well trained and highly responsive guest relations team, we have made our mark as an organization that truly values our fans. In fact, they know that they're not just Thunder fans, they're part of the Thunder family. Pete, we are so proud to have you as part of our organization. I'm so very pleased to introduce you as the 2013 CCO of the Year.
Congratulations from all the Thunder family!
