Chiefs Reportedly Cut Ties With VP/Sales & Marketing Tammy Fruits
The Chiefs have cut ties with Tammy Fruits, the team’s former VP/Sales & Marketing, according to a blog post written by Bob Gretz, a former Chiefs beat writer. Chiefs Exec VP & COO Mark Donovan confirmed the report via e-mail. Fruits’ name and title are not listed on the staff directory on the Chiefs’ website. She oversaw a department responsible for selling suites and club seats at Arrowhead Stadium, including new premium seat inventory tied to the facility’s $375M renovation completed in '10. Fruits joined the Chiefs in September '05.
In the same blog post, Gretz reported the Chiefs had signed a naming-rights deal for Arrowhead Stadium. Donovan in a separate e-mail said that piece of information was inaccurate.
