Brewers tap 3 execs for new leadership roles

The Brewers announced the appointment of three executives to new organizational positions on Friday.

Andrew Pauls was named vice president of business development, Tai Pauls the senior director of hospitality and special events and Mike Schwartz the senior director of strategy and analytics.

"These three executives are leading new departments that will generate new opportunities for us to grow our business and enhance the fan experience at Miller Park," Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger said. "Andrew, Tai and Mike have been key performers in our organization and are uniquely suited to these leadership roles."

Andrew Pauls, in his 11th season in the organization, has spent the past six seasons as senior director of corporate marketing. He previously served as director of corporate marketing and manager of suite sales. He will assist with sales within all revenue-generating departments in his new role.

Tai Pauls began with the Brewers' ticket sales department in 2006 before moving to the Brewers' enterprises department in 2008. In her new role, Pauls will oversee special events and work closely with other fan-facing departments.

Schwartz rejoined the Brewers in January 2016 as director of food and beverage hospitality. He previously spent six years with the Brewers in the baseball operations department from 2004-09. His new role will be leading and developing a newly-created department that will provide strategic, quantitative and qualitative support to all areas of the organization's business operations.
