The Milwaukee Bucks announced two new additions to their senior management business team and promotions of current management and staff members to three executive vice president positions and seven vice president roles.

Jamie Morningstar will serve the Bucks as vice president of ticket sales and service and joins the organization from Madison Square Garden, where she was vice president of service and retention. In her role at MSG, she managed the season ticket base for the NBA’s New York Knicks, the NHL’s New York Rangers and the WNBA’s New York Liberty.

Theodore Loehrke joined the Bucks in October 2012 and serves as senior vice president and chief revenue officer. He joined the Bucks from the National Basketball Association in New York where he was senior vice president of team marketing and business operations.

“The additions of Jamie and Ted are important to our organization as we continue to meet the challenges of professional sports revenue generation in the Milwaukee region and Wisconsin,” said Ron Walter, who was promoted to executive vice president of business administration for the Bucks. “Both are talented, experienced individuals who have contributed positively to the NBA, individual teams and successful organizations. They fit well with our business team and share our goals.”

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to join the Bucks and work with such a talented and dedicated team,” Morningstar said. “Milwaukee is a great city with passionate sports fans, and we’re going to work hard to grow our ticket base while continuing to deliver the best service in sports.”

In addition to Walter, the Bucks’ new executive vice presidents include John F. Steinmiller, executive vice president of business operations, and Mike Burr, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

The Bucks also named the following vice presidents: Jim Woloszyk, vice president, finance and accounting; Dan Smyczek, vice president, public relations; David Snyder, vice president, corporate partnerships; Skip Robinson, vice president, community relations and player development; Michael Grahl, vice president, digital platforms; and Dustin Godsey, vice president, marketing.

“Our new additions and today’s promotions are strong investments in the future success of our organization,” Steinmiller said. “We have strengthened our business team with both new and existing talent.”
