Stan Kasten became president and CEO of the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 30, 2012. Under Kasten, the Dodgers have won three consecutive NL West titles for the first time in franchise history, led the Major Leagues in attendance each of those years, and revitalized their minor league system into what Baseball America declared No. 1 in baseball. He was president of the Washington Nationals from 2006-10, where he worked to re-energize a dormant baseball fan base and simultaneously established a crown jewel franchise in Washington, D.C. In 1999, Kasten became the first sports figure to hold the title of president of three different teams in three different major sports simultaneously. He accomplished this unique feat with Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves, the National Basketball Association’s Atlanta Hawks and the National Hockey League’s Atlanta Thrashers. Highlighting Kasten’s professional career was the Braves’ 1995 World Championship. During his tenure, the Braves and Hawks made a combined 30 post-season appearances and claimed 15 division titles, including 12 in a row in the Braves’ unprecedented run from 1991-2003. In 1979, at age 27, Kasten became the youngest general manager in NBA history with the Hawks. He held the position until 1990. Kasten became the Hawks’ president in 1986. During his lengthy tenure in the Hawks’ front office, Kasten became the first -- and only – NBA executive to win back-to-back Executive of the Year awards in 1986-87. Kasten also became president of the Braves in 1986. From 1987-2003, the Braves won more games than any other team in MLB. From 1991-2005, the Braves won 14 consecutive division titles, five National League pennants and the 1995 World Series.
