Oakland A’s General Manager and subject of the bestselling book, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game - currently a major motion picture.
Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Billy Beane has molded the Oakland Athletics into a perennial postseason contender since assuming the general manager’s duties shortly following the 1997 season. He shattered antiquated MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated wins by implementing unorthodox (by MLB standards) strategic methodology that inevitably led one of the worst teams in the AL with one of the lowest payrolls, to three American League West Division titles. Beane’s strategy has since opened the eyes of many top sports executives and CEOs around the country who now utilize the “Moneyball” methodology.
“Arrangements for the appearance of Billy Beane made through Greater Talent Network, Inc. New York, NY”
