    Brian Auld

    President of the Tampa Bay Rays


    Brian Auld begins his third season as team president and 12th season with the club.

    During his first year as team president, Auld brought a renewed focus to the Rays mission: to energize the community through the magic of Rays baseball, by emphasizing the Rays commitment to the community and its employee-first culture.

    Under Auld's leadership, the Rays employee-first culture is thriving. In addition to paid parental leave, adoption benefits, paid volunteer time and a wellness initiative, the Rays created a $10 minimum wage for all of its part-time employees. In May 2015 during a visit to St. Petersburg by Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez, the Rays were recognized as an outstanding corporate citizen.

    Prior to Auld's promotion to team president, he oversaw various aspects of the team's business operations, including the human resources, information technology, marketing, ticket sales, fan experience and stadium operations departments.

    Auld joined the Rays in June 2005 as director of planning and development, where he worked closely with Matt Silverman to define organizational priorities and assist with the transition in ownership. Since then, he has worked to build an employee-friendly organization. His accomplishments include the addition of maternity and paternity benefits for all full-time staff, creation of a staff wellness program and the establishment of a culture of community service through the Employee Community Outreach Team (ECOT). All Rays staff may spend up to one paid workday each month volunteering in the community and ECOT assists by finding opportunities.

    Prior to joining the Rays, Auld attended Harvard Business School, where he earned his MBA focusing on managing human capital, marketing and finance. Auld's previous work experience includes serving as lead teacher and director of development for the East Palo Alto Charter School in California.

    Auld received a bachelor's degree in economics and master's degree in education from Stanford University, where he also captained the lacrosse team. He was born in Berkeley, Calif., and attended high school in Dallas. Brian is proud to claim that he once trekked to the bottom of Mount Everest.

    He currently serves on the board of directors of the Rays Baseball Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay Area Chiefs of Police Education and Research Foundation and the Tampa Bay Partnership.

    He and his wife, Molly, reside in St. Petersburg and are proud parents of two daughters, Lucy and Mia, and a son, Jack.

    Guest Speaker

    Kirk Kirkpatrick with
    Riverside Recovery
    • 18 Aug 2018



    Thanks to the overwhelming support of our community, we were able to surpass our goal for the 2017 Incredible Duck Race. Our hope was to sell 5,000 ducks and raise $15,000; we ended up selling out at 7,401 ducks and raising $19,000 for children here in the local community!

    Our 2018 race is shaping up to be even bigger! We are hoping to double the size of our race and the number of ducks sold so that we can impact the lives of even more children in the Bay Area. Over 10,000 ducks will race down the Hillsborough River on August 18, 2018 in front of Curtis Hixon Park to compete for amazing prizes. 

    Individuals can adopt a duck for $5 for a chance to compete in the race. The first three ducks to cross the finish line will win cash prizes for their adoptive parents. Booths, entertainment, and food vendors will be available at the festival like atmosphere leading up to the main event. 

    More details to come!

    Guest Speaker

    Julian Mackenzie
    with MOSI

    Veteran business leader Julian Mackenzie has been named President & Chief Executive Officer of the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) after leading the organization on an interim basis since March.

    MOSI’s Board of Directors voted unanimously on July 12, 2017 to promote Mackenzie, who joined MOSI in October 2016 as Chief Financial Officer after more than 30 years in a range of business leadership roles in the USA, France, the UK, the Netherlands, and Italy.

    Mackenzie has helped improve MOSI’s finances — with year-to-date figures for fiscal year 2017 showing MOSI performing better than fiscal year 2016. He has led a team of staff and museum consultants in developing a substantial turnaround plan to refocus MOSI on its mission of science education and reshape MOSI as a financially sustainable organization. That plan received a unanimous vote of support from the Hillsborough County Commission and is being implemented over the next four months.

    In previous roles, Mackenzie has developed and led turnaround plans, restructuring efforts, and rebranding campaigns with multiple companies in the United States and Europe. His experience includes leadership positions in companies in the fields of medical technology, telecommunications, manufacturing, insurance, and finance.

    Julian and his wife Deborah have three children — Ava, 22; William, 18; and Beatrice, 14 — and he is fluent in four languages: English, French, Italian, and Portuguese.
