Lumberjacks Welcome Glenn Carey as Business Development Manager

LUMBERJACKS ANNOUNCE THE HIRING OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

The South Shore Lumberjacks Jr. A Hockey Club is very pleased to announce the hiring of Glenn Carey to the position of Business Development Manager. Glenn will take over the duties from Kevin Benjamin who was serving in the position on an interim basis while the Lumberjacks began the search to fill the role on a permanent basis.

Lumberjacks Head Coach and General Manager believes that adding this position is the next step in moving the Lumberjacks toward the ultimate goal. “Over the past few seasons we have been working hard to position ourselves as a first class organization that will continue to strive toward winning championships. We continue to grow our business relationships in the community and recognize how important these relationships are to the survival of the organization in the South Shore. We strongly felt that more attention needed to be placed on this aspect of the organization to better meet the needs of our partners and Glenn is the right guy to take this on. He has a strong sense of passion for the area and solid background in sales and marketing in the hockey community that will serve as a benefit to our existing and future business partners.”

Glenn has some deep roots in the local hockey community, having played in the Bridgewater Minor Hockey Association, South Shore Mustangs, and Parkview Education Center in his youth.

Glenn took on his first head coaching position in the Bridgewater Minor Hockey Association at the age of 18, and it was then that he really began to love the entirety of the game.

After graduating from PVEC in 1989, Glenn studied Theology at N.B.B.I. in Victoria, NB, and then Corrections at NS Community College in Windsor, NS, where he graduated in 1994.

From 1995 until 2017, Glenn lived in the US, where he owned hockey pro shops in Southern Maine, and continued coaching at the middle school and high school level. He went on to coach and manage Junior A programs in Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Delaware, and even coached for a season in sunny Arizona.

Glenn is currently active in the local hockey community by playing gentleman’s hockey, serving as an official, and by serving on the SSMHA Board of Directors.

Glenn looks forward to working with the businesses and organizations in Lunenburg County, to grow the Lumberjacks brand and fan base, through profitable and unique exposure and advertising opportunities with the club and facility.
