Brent joined the TinCaps staff in October 2007 and loves everything involving downtown Fort Wayne. Brent is the Assistant Director of Group Sales, and is responsible for selling groups and season ticket packages for several areas around town, including downtown. Outside of those duties, Brent also runs the TinCaps internship program with Austin Allen and assists with group areas and promotions on game days.
Brent is a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a 2007 graduate of the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse where he was a Sport Management major. Prior to joining the TinCaps, Brent completed two internships in baseball, spending the summer of 2006 with the La Crosse Loggers of the collegiate Northwoods League and 2007 with the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds of the Pacific Coast League.
Brent also has just about as much Wisconsin pride as anyone you will ever meet. This includes defending his Packers, Brewers, Badgers, and Bucks at all costs.
Brent is involved with several non-profit activities. He is on the board and the co-chair for both the Fort4Fitness Fall Festival and Fantasy of Lights 5K. He also is on the committee’s for the River City Rat Race, a 5K and 10K race that is the largest fundraiser for the Central Branch YMCA in Fort Wayne; and the Cupid’s Chocolate Chase 5K, which benefits the ALS Foundation and American Cancer Society.
Brent is looking forward to marrying his beautiful Fiancee, Melissa Darby in November of 2017. He has the best parents, Steve, and Vicki, that anyone could ever ask for; as well as two awesome older sisters, and five fantastic nephews that he gets up to Wisconsin to visit a handful of times a year.
Brent attempts to live each day by his favorite quote, “Nothing great could be accomplished without enthusiasm.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
