Brandon Raphael, who has spent more than eight years in sales management, business-to-business outside sales, marketing and business development, has been named the Director of Development for the Broncos’ athletic department.
Raphael comes to CPP after serving as the Director of Sales for CD Chivas USA, a Major League Soccer franchise located in Carson. During his two seasons with the suburban Los Angeles club, he restructured the sales and service departments and helped oversee the club’s increased season ticket holders and game-day revenues.
“We are looking forward to Brandon being a part of our team,” said CPP Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Brian Swanson. “His development, sales and management experience will be instrumental in helping move our program forward.”
He served two separate stints with the Mandalay Sports Entertainment company, based in Los Angeles. He served as its National Sales Manager Consultant in 2007 where he worked with its three Minor League Baseball franchises. He got his start with Mandalay in 2000 where he worked as a Senior Corporate Marketing Manager with the Las Vegas 51s, the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate from 2000-2003 and the Frisco Roughriders, the Texas Rangers’ Double-A affiliate from 2003-2005.
After his time with Mandalay, he served nearly two years with the Las Vegas-based Everycontractor Inc. as its Vice President, Business Operations.
Raphael grew up in suburban St. Louis and was graduated from Maryville University in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in business management.
He and his wife Kimberly are the parents of son Caden and expectant parents in September. They will reside in Upland.
