JASON ZILLO

New York Yankees
Vice president, communications and media relations

The crazy Bronx Zoo days that surrounded the Yankees in the 1970s and ’80s are a mere distant memory as Zillo has helped create a sense of calm, cool professionalism around the team as it operates in MLB’s largest media market. A 21-year veteran of the club, Zillo is also the key figure behind the Yankees’ Hope Week, an annual charitable campaign started in 2009 that has since been replicated in the club’s minor league system and by other organizations.
