The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (independent; Atlantic League) announced the promotions of Courtney Knichel, Sean Maher and Matthew Ammerman in the team’s front office.
Knichel is one of the Blue Crabs original staff members beginning prior to the inaugural season in 2008. She has spent the past six seasons as the team’s Marketing Manager. The 27-year-old grew up in Southern Maryland and attended Muskingum University in New Concord, Ohio where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communications and Marketing in 2008.
“Courtney’s promotion to Assistant General Manager of Marketing & Special Events is well earned, as she personifies what the Blue Crabs brand stands for,” said Blue Crabs General Manager Patrick Day. “Courtney has been a pivotal member of our front office since the Blue Crab’s inaugural season, and we take great pride in her accomplishments and in adding important responsibilities to her already impressive tenure with the Blue Crabs.”
The Lakewood, New Jersey native Sean Maher joined the Blue Crabs before the 2013 season as the Business Administration Manager. Prior to joining the Blue Crabs, he was with the Camden Riversharks (independent; Atlantic League) working in both the box office and finance departments. Maher attended Widener University earning a degree in business and then went on to obtain his Master’s Degree from Drexel University in Business.
“Sean’s commitment to excellence, and willingness to put in extra effort, are just a few reasons why he has been so successful during his time with the Blue Crabs,” Day said. “He’s passionate and extremely dedicated to ensuring that operationally we are running as smooth as humanly possible and that Regency Furniture Stadium is the best in baseball.”
Ammerman returns to the Blue Crabs after spending the past four seasons as one of the team’s Sales Account Executives.
