Cleveland Indians announce hiring of new Executive VP of Sales and Marketing


The Cleveland Indians on Monday named Brian Barren the organization's new Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Brian joins the Indians after spending 24 years at Procter & Gamble, where most recently he was Director of the company's Kroger Customer Business Development team, responsible for leading, training and developing close to a 100 employee multi-functional business team.

From his time at P&G, Barren brings expertise in general management, sales, marketing and brand development. Barren held multiple high-level leadership roles, including profit and loss responsibility, for two of P&G's top seven business development teams in the world (Walmart, Kroger).

"We are excited to welcome Brian and his 24 years of experience at one of the most respected companies in the world," said Indians President Mark Shapiro. "Brian is a strong, proven leader who aligns perfectly with our organizational values. I am confident he will make a very positive impact on the Indians organization, the Northeast Ohio community, and our fans."

In his new role with the Indians, he will oversee all sales and marketing departments.
