Veteran hockey executive Joe Greene joined the Waterloo Black Hawks in June of 2015.
With a decade of prior sports experience, Greene’s efforts have generated fun, family-friendly promotions to enhance the fan experience during successful terms with four professional hockey clubs and an independent-league baseball team. As president of the Dayton Gems of the Central Hockey League from 2010-2012, the team was recognized as the CHL’s Community Relations Franchise of the Year. In 2009/10, Greene was the Missouri Mavericks’ assistant general manager in that club’s CHL expansion season, and at the conclusion of the campaign, the Mavericks were recognized by the league with Group Sales Franchise and Merchandising Franchise of the Year awards.
Greene’s first role in professional sports was with the CHL’s Topeka Tarantulas in 2004/05. He spent the following four seasons with the circuit’s Wichita Thunder, also serving concurrently with the Wichita Wingnuts baseball club of the American Association. Prior to working at the team level, he was on air in radio as assistant sports director for a group of eight radio stations in Garden City, Kansas.
From 2012 through his hiring by the Black Hawks, Greene served as Customer Service and Marketing Manager for Twin Valley Telephone, a voice, cable, and internet communications provider for customers in north central Kansas. He is a 2002 graduate of Fort Hays State University.
