Rogers named Director of Communications, Nuse takes over Group Sales
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Two members of the Corpus Christi Hooks front office staff are taking on new roles with the club.
Team president J.J. Gottsch announced Director of Group Sales Matt Rogers has shifted to the newly created position of Director of Communications and Adam Nuse has been promoted from Account Executive to Director of Group Sales.
"Fall is when we take a look at the entire operation," Gottsch said. "And, sometimes we make adjustments. Matt came to us as Director of Group Sales in December after eight seasons with the Astros, but he worked in media relations in college athletics for many years before moving into professional baseball. He'll work closely with Matt Hicks to advance our media initiatives."
"From the beginning, Adam has been a top producer for us and it's time to recognize his contributions. He came up in the Ryan-Sanders organization, so we've enjoyed watching him learn and grow."
Rogers earned a Journalism degree at Houston in 1982 and spent 17 years as a publicist at Houston, Baylor, Sam Houston State and Georgia Southern. With the Astros, he worked as a manager in group and season-ticket sales and was extensively involved in marketing, customer service, operations and special projects like the 2004 All-Star Game and Minute Maid College Classic. Rogers currently directs the Whataburger College Classic for the Hooks. Nuse, 25, moved to Corpus Christi in August 2004 after earning his Master's degree in Sports Administration at Wichita State. He is a 2003 Marketing graduate of the University of Oklahoma. Nuse's sports sales experience includes stints with Ryan-Sanders' Round Rock Express, the Oklahoma RedHawks and Wichita State athletics.
