The SF Giants CEO, Larry Baer lives a life as disciplined as the players on his team. He wakes up early, exercises seven days a week and sharpens his most important muscle (his brain), by practicing mindfulness and reading three newspapers a day. He accomplishes all of this before he starts his work day.
A UC Berkeley and Harvard Business school alum, Larry Baer worked in broadcasting until in 1992, he joined the Giants as Vice President after he took the lead in assembling a new ownership group to keep the Giants in San Francisco. From there Larry Baer steadily moved up; becoming Chief Operating Officer in 1996, Team President in 2008, and finally the Giants CEO in 2012. That same year, the Giants won their second World Title in three years.
As the Giants CEO and President Larry Baer oversaw the construction of, what is considered by many the ‘best ballpark ever built, Oracle Park. It became one of only four parks to have over three million in attendance for eight years in a row.
The Giants CEO also pulls double duty, serving as the Chairman and CEO of the Giants Developmental Services. Currently they are developing Mission Rock, which when completed will include: 1,500 residential units, a million square feet in offices, 250,000 square feet in retail and restaurant space and 8 acres of parks and natural open space. The project, which is located across McCovey park was overwhelming approved by SF voters (getting 73 percent of votes.)
When he’s not busy working, the SF Giants CEO likes to spend time walking his dog, catching up with friends, and spending quality time, every Sunday, with his Wife Pam and four children. He believes in social justice and that America can come together with a little love and understanding. Go to this page on LinkedIn for related information.
