Andrew Phillips is director of marketing and public relations for the Akron Racers, a professional women’s softball team in Akron, OH. While a student at North Central, he interned for the Chicago Bandits for two years and was hired by the team in 2009. In addition to his duties as director of public relations, social media and ticket sales, Phillips eventually assumed responsibility for the Bandits’ popular internship program. While it was hard to walk away from a program that had won two National Pro Fastpitch league championship titles, the move to Akron brings him closer to his goal of becoming general manager of a sports team.
