Staci Slaughter, San Francisco Giants
San Francisco Giants
Executive vice president, communications, and senior adviser to the CEO
Despite a losing season this year, the Giants are still the closest thing baseball has to a dynasty with three titles this decade and a strong industry reputation as an off-the-field innovator. Slaughter, a 21-year veteran of the club, has played a vital role in creating and managing that success as a close, trusted aide to team President and CEO Larry Baer. But outside of the good times, Slaughter also is a seasoned crisis communicator having dealt with tougher issues such as Barry Bonds and steroid allegations, the financing of AT&T Park, and the Bay Area territorial battle with the Oakland A’s.
