|Bulls Promote Bishop to Assistant GM
New Bulls Asst GM Jon Bishop
The Durham Bulls announced another promotion on Wednesday, February 5, 2003. DBBC Ticket Sales Manager Jon Bishop is moving into the position of Assistant General Manager, vacated when Mike Birling received a call up to General Manager earlier this year.
A graduate of Texas A&M University, Bishop joined the Bulls as a group sales representative in the Fall of 1997, shortly before the Bulls moved to Triple-A. He worked his way up the ladder becoming box office director and then managing ticket sales of almost 1.5 million tickets from 2000-2002.
“Jon has done an outstanding job growing our tickets sales department to one of the best in the country. His commitment to continued improvement combined with his exceptional ability managing people made him an obvious choice for assistant general manager,” Birling said.
Bishop lives in Apex with his wife, Kelly, and daughter, Camryn (1).
