Matt Arnold Promoted to Senior Vice President and General Manager
“For the past five years, Matt has served an invaluable role in helping to guide our baseball operations group,” said Stearns. “He has contributed to every significant decision we have made and has offered indispensable advice and support throughout his time with the Brewers. Today’s announcement formalizes how we have operated over the last few years. This move provides Matt with the deserved recognition of his tireless work and ensures that our baseball operations leadership group remains intact.”
“On behalf of my family, we are so very thankful to Mark Attanasio and David Stearns for this opportunity,” said Arnold. “Over the past 20 years, I have learned so much from my wonderful baseball friends and colleagues. I greatly appreciate them all, and would never have a day like this without them, nor without the incredible support from my family. I am excited about the opportunity to continue to partner with the Attanasio family and our incredible leadership team of David Stearns and Craig Counsell along with our entire staff. I am eager to carry on our collective efforts as we seek to bring a championship to Milwaukee.”
Prior to joining the Brewers, Arnold spent nine seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays (2007-15), most recently as director of player personnel. During his time in Tampa Bay, the team won 90 or more games in five of six seasons from 2008-13 and qualified for the postseason four times (2008, 2010-11 and 2013), including the franchise’s first World Series appearance in 2008.
Arnold, who has 20 seasons of professional baseball experience, has also served roles with the Los Angeles Dodgers (2000), Texas Rangers (2002) and Cincinnati Reds (2003-06).
Originally from California, Arnold graduated from the University of California-Santa Barbara with a bachelor’s degree in economics. He and his wife currently reside in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, with their two children.
