The Rochester Americans went to the Big Easy for a big hire.
The Amerks have announced Rob Minter will serve as the team's vice president of business operations. He will oversee the day-to-day business activities of the Buffalo Sabres' minor-league club.
Minter arrives in Rochester after three years as the director of premium seating for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans. He organized and managed a staff that focused on the sale and retention of premium products for both franchises.
“I’m tremendously excited to join such a longstanding and historic organization like the Rochester Americans,” Minter said. “I look forward to getting to know our loyal season-ticket holders, corporate partners and the great hockey fans we have in the city of Rochester.”
The Virginia native has also worked in the American Hockey League for the Lake Erie Monsters, overseeing their ticket operations.
The Amerks' position opened in October after the organization let go of Rob Kopacz. He had been the vice president of business operations since July 2011.
