Tucker Kain enters his eighth year with the Los Angeles Dodgers and was promoted to President of the Dodgers Business Enterprise in 2019. Kain originally joined the team in 2012 as Chief Financial Officer of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Managing Director of Guggenheim Baseball Management after leading the diligence effort to acquire the club.  In his role, Kain is responsible for driving the growth of the Dodger organization’s business enterprise, including strategic vision and planning, data-driven decision making, new business initiatives, and business extensions.  Focusing on innovation, enhancing organizational fan engagement, and youth programs such as the Los Angeles Dodgers Training Academy launched in 2018, Kain continues to advance the development of the Dodger brand as a global entertainment property. 

In addition, in 2014, Kain spearheaded the creation of Elysian Park Ventures, the investment vehicle of the Dodger ownership group, in an effort to leverage the Dodger brand in helping drive innovation.  The flagship program of Elysian Park Ventures is the Global Sports Venture Studio, formerly the Dodger Accelerator, that brings together some of the world’s biggest sports brands to collaborate around innovation in the sports and entertainment industry.  This combination of brand partners and growth-stage start-ups lays the groundwork for continued innovation and business opportunity for the organization.

Previously, Kain was a Vice President at Guggenheim Partners in New York City, working in the corporate credit group overseeing an investment portfolio in excess of $2.0 billion.  Kain, a two-time selection in 2014 and 2019 of the Sports Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40 Award”, grew up in Cleveland and received his B.A. degree in Economics from Williams College.  He and his wife, Ali, reside in Los Angeles with their daughter Palmer.
