Red Sox Hire Dennis Robarge as Sales Head
The Salem Red Sox, the Advanced Class-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox have announced the hiring of Dennis Robarge as the team’s new Director of Sales. Robarge, a 26-year veteran of professional sports, will oversee all areas of ticket, hospitality and corporate sales.
If the name seems familiar to Salem baseball fans it is because this isn’t Robarge’s first time around with the franchise. Robarge was the team's assistant GM from 1990 – 1996 and played a key role in the team’s move to the then-Salem Memorial Baseball Stadium. Some will recall Robarge as the President of the NBA Development League Roanoke Dazzle from 2002 – 2006.
From late 1996 to late 2001 Robarge served as General Manager of the Atlanta Dragway of the National Hot Rod Association. In the fall of 2006 Robarge founded More Than a Game Consulting, LLC. For the last three years Robarge’s More Than a Game Consulting successfully helped a variety of businesses, both inside and outside of sports improve their sales and marketing operations.
