My name is Dustin Parker, the newest Account Executive for your San Francisco Bulls Hockey Team. I hail from a bustling farming metropolis known as Bakersfield, CA; Home of the Bakersfield Condors. I still remember attending Bakersfield Fog games in the mid 90′s before they changed their name to the Condors in 1998 and joining the ECHL in 2003. Minor league hockey was a huge part of the sports culture in Bakersfield and continues to grow year after year. Although, my roots are in Bakersfield, nothing would make me happier than to see our San Francisco Bulls own the Pacific Division and win the Kelly Cup next season!
I attended school down south at Long Beach State University earning a bachelor’s degree in business marketing. My sports background comes with my first job out of school in 2010 with the Anaheim Angels (refuse to call them Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim). As an Inside Sales Representative I was responsible for filling the bowl night after night and rubbing elbows with our biggest clients at the Big A. My position with the Angels gave me an in depth perspective into the interworking’s of the sports industry and the business model for the MLB. My best memories with Angels Baseball was meeting and speaking with owner, Arte Moreno and our front office softball team!
Second job in sports was in 2011 with the Anaheim Ducks Hockey Club (don’t hate me Sharks fans!). Hockey is a different breed of fans in a niche market, so I was excited to learn about a whole new product, arena and business. My best memories with the Ducks was seeing Corey Perry’s 50th goal coming on a hat trick and seeing the first round of playoffs versus Nashville.
I’m extremely happy to be here in the Bay Area helping to get this exciting new franchise off the ground. I can’t wait to see our Bulls take the ice in October in front of a full Cow Palace. Looking forward to meeting everyone at our Select-A-Seat event in March and continuing to make the Bulls the best hockey team possible!
