Business Over Beer episode 110 with Gus Farah | Executive VP of Operations for the Ridgefield Raptors
“Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack”… because we’re going out to the ball park with Gus Farah, Executive VP of Operations for the Ridgefield Raptors baseball team.
In this episode, Gus shares with us that he was born in Cuba and his family relocated to Portland, OR when he was a young child. Professionally, he spent 17 years running the revenue generation side for five CBS Radio Stations in Portland. Also, he ran sponsorship sales for the Portland Trail Blazers before joining the ownership group of the Raptors.
The West Coast League that the Raptors play in, along with the the Cowlitz Bears that Gus and his partners also own, has expanded by five teams for the 2022 season including several teams in Canada, showing that this is a great way to build community around baseball and to give a professional level development for college players.
The Raptors are committed to affordable family friendly entertainment for all of Southwest Washington and bringing the joy of baseball to new generations of players and fans.
