Somerset Patriots And Spearhead Staffing Searching For A Kid CEO

kidceopageBridgewater, NJ – The Somerset Patriots and Spearhead Staffing have teamed up to hire a Kid CEO for the 2015 season.


Interviews for the Kid CEO will be conducted during the Patriots Fan Fest event on Saturday, April 11th from 12:00-3:00 pm. All young fans ages 8-15 that are interested are encouraged to attend Fan Fest and check in by the elevator on the main concourse to interview.


Five finalists will be selected from the interviews at Fan Fest and will return to a designated Somerset Patriots game to address the crowd on why they want to be the Kid CEO.


“Spearhead Staffing is extremely excited to partner with the Somerset Patriots on sponsoring this year’s Kid CEO program.  The tie between professional organizations and the communities they work in are important to companies with strong values.  To be able to demonstrate through this program to the families and our future leaders of Somerset County just makes it that much more powerful.  We are looking forward to taking advantage of Spearhead Staffing’s abilities to identify up-and-coming talent to help find the Somerset Patriots an impressive young individual to be the next Kid CEO,” said Doug Bryson, President of Spearhead Staffing.


As the Kid CEO, the young fan will follow front office staff members during the games to learn about ticketing, merchandising, promotions, media, marketing, and ballpark operations. The Kid CEO will sit in on Patriots staff meetings and write about the experiences he/she has in the position. The Kid CEO will also receive a personalized Somerset Patriots jersey, tickets to five games, a ceremonial first pitch for a game, and a meet and greet with Sparky Lyle and the players. This is the seventh time that the team will name a Kid CEO.


“We are excited to form this partnership with Spearhead Staffing to provide a young fan with an enjoyable experience while also teaching them the daily operation and responsibilities of a professional baseball team,” said Patrick McVerry, President and General Manager of the Somerset Patriots. “It’s an enjoyable experience for the Kid CEO and our staff always looks forward to teaching them the different aspects of running a successful baseball team.”
