Derrick Hall

President & CEO, Arizona Diamondbacks

Considered by many to be among the leaders of the game, D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall has turned the organization into a model franchise within the sports industry and throughout the business world during his 15 years at the helm of the club. Hall is the fourth-longest tenured CEO in Major League Baseball behind Atlanta’s Terry McGuirk, St. Louis’s Bill DeWitt Jr. and Cincinnati’s Bob Castellini, each of whom have a controlling ownership interest in their respective franchises. In 2019, he was inducted into the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame for his significant contributions since joining the D-backs in 2005.

Hall focuses the organization’s efforts in 5 areas he has called the “Circle of Success” - fan experience, performance, community, culture and financial efficiency - each of which has seen tremendous growth during his tenure. The success of the franchise during Hall’s tenure has led to numerous honors, while Hall’s leadership has helped guide the D-backs to 3 postseason appearances, including 2 National League West Division Championships (2007, ‘11) and 1 NLCS (2007).

He and his wife Amy reside in Arcadia and have three children, Logan (a television producer in Los Angeles), Hayden (a student at Duke University) and Kylie (a soccer player at Emory University).
