In his third season as GM of the Oklahoma City RedHawks, Byrnes oversees all aspects of franchise operations, from the establishment of partnerships to creating fan entertainment. Byrnes’ advice to fellow young professionals is to be curious. “Ask questions, and learn the reasons and philosophy behind how decisions are made for a business,” he says. He hopes to grow on the recent success of the RedHawks and craft a sustainable model that plays an important role in the quality of life for Oklahoma residents and makes the RedHawks the top franchise in Minor League Baseball. ??
