Caroline O’Connor

President of Business Operations, Miami Marlins

The trajectory of Caroline O’Connor’s career is anything other than ordinary. After holding longterm executive positions at both IBM and Morgan Stanley, this past year she was named the president of business operations of the Miami Marlins, making her the second-ever female president of a Major League Baseball team in history. Her position makes her one of a select few trailblazing the path for women in the male-dominated world of professional sports business management.

Though she’s only held the position for a short time, O’Connor has already had a marked impact for the team. Since taking the role, she has prioritized connecting with the local Miami community and improving game attendance. She’s facilitated events where over 2,000 fans are able to meet players at LoanDepot Park; organized cultural celebrations for the Marlins’ local Florida community, such as Venezuelan Heritage Day; and worked hand-in-hand with the Miami Chamber of Commerce. Under O’Connor’s aegis, the Marlins drew the team’s largest home crowd in over six years (32,000 spectators to their game against the Detroit Tigers), and viewer streaming has increased by 80%.
