Sonya Saujani, a member of the team’s community ownership group, has been named vice-president of business operations and will work closely with team president John Wilson and Lee Richardson, also both part of the Grizzlies ownership team.

Jim Swanson of the Victoria HarbourCats baseball club has also been brought in to serve in a marketing advisory position, while Don Robinson has been named vice-president of hockey operations.
