The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown promoted three members of its senior staff to vice president, Hall President Jeff Idelson announced Tuesday via email.
Brad Horn, Ken Meifert and Erik Strohl have served the Hall as senior directors in their respective areas of museum operations since 2008. Horn was promoted to Vice President, Communications and Education; Meifert to Vice President, Sponsorship and Development; and Strohl to Vice President, Exhibitions and Collections.
“Brad, Ken and Erik’s promotions are well-deserved, based on their great contributions to the Museum over the years,” Idelson said in a media release. “They are a strong part of a Hall of Fame team that has helped evolve the visitor experience, both in the Museum and outside of Cooperstown. As we head into our 75th anniversary year, all three will be instrumental in helping to shape the future of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.”
Horn joined the Hall in February 2002 as director of public relations and was promoted to communications director in March 2005. In April 2008, he became the senior director of communications and education.
Meifert started with the Hall in June 1994 as manager of retail accounting. He was later promoted to director of sales and then to director of sales and membership. In the spring of 2008, he was promoted to senior director of development.
Strohl began as a collections intern in March 1998 while attending the Cooperstown Graduate Program, where he earned his master’s of arts. He was hired full-time in 1999 as assistant curator of history and research. In 2005, he was promoted to curator of history and education and became point-person for the “Baseball As America” tour before becoming senior director of exhibits and collections in 2008.
