STACEY JAMES

New England Patriots
Vice president of media relations

James’ time with the Patriots predated by nearly a year the purchase of the team by Robert Kraft, who famously turned it into an international sports brand. At Kraft’s side, handling success and controversy, both of which have come in spades, is James. From the Krafts, to Bill Belichick to Tom Brady, the Patriots are a constant story for global media, and it is James who is handling the access and directing the Patriots’ message.
