Power Players: Derrick Hall, Arizona Diamondbacks
CEO and president
Described by colleagues as smart and sophisticated, Hall took the lead in negotiations to sign a long-term deal with Fox Sports two years ago, a deal the team called the largest financial transaction in franchise history. During the negotiations, Hall developed a deep understanding of the media business. He’s had an exemplary career in sports between the Dodgers organization, where he spent 12 seasons, and the Diamondbacks.
