Senior Vice President, Business Development
Brandon Schneider is in his 14th season with the Warriors organization, his second as senior vice president, business development after serving two seasons as group vice president of ticket sales & services, and three seasons as vice president, ticket sales and services. In his current role, Schneider is responsible for all strategic planning and execution related to the organization’s ticket and suite sales, services, and operations efforts. He also manages the team’s retail business both online and at Oracle Arena, and remains laser focused on continuing to improve the overall fan experience at Oracle Arena. Brandon is leveraging his experience with the team in working with architects and the design team in ensuring the Warriors execute on their plan of building a world class arena in San Francisco.
Under Schneider’s leadership the Warriors season ticket base has grown to a franchise record 14,500 seats, and he spearheaded a successful renewal strategy that resulted in a 90%+ season ticket renewal rate in each of the past three seasons. The Warriors launched a Priority Wait List for season tickets prior to the 2013-14 season, and that list has grown to 17,000+ members who are committed to purchasing season tickets if/when they become available. He pushed the organization to successfully adopt a dynamic ticket pricing model prior to the 2011-12 campaign, and mirrored the model on the suite level shortly thereafter. .
Prior to being named VP, Schneider served as the team’s executive director of ticket sales in 2008-09 after serving as the director of ticket sales for the 2006-07 and 2007-08 seasons. Schneider originally joined the Warriors in the summer of 2002 as a season ticket account executive before being promoted to ticket sales manager in June of 2004 and assistant director of ticket sales the following April. .
A Bay Area native, Schneider graduated from UCLA in 2001 with a degree in business economics, and an accounting minor. A diehard fan of both the San Francisco 49ers and San Francisco Giants, he lives in Oakland with his wife, Amanda.
