Sports Reference Bolsters Product and Operations Capabilities with 3 Hires

8th May 2024

Sports Reference has made three hires this Spring—two Product Managers to help define and guide new product efforts and an Executive Operations Coordinator to streamline company’s operations. We are thrilled to welcome:

Zach Bellavia, Product Manager, joined Sports Reference in April 2024. He's a Butler University alum and has an affinity for the scrappy underdog. Zach follows most Chicago sports teams. He also enjoys the niche fandom of professional track and field and distance running.

Emily Anderson, Product Manager, joined Sports Reference in 2024. Originally from Indiana, Emily now resides in Chicagoland after a long stint in Los Angeles. Emily was indoctrinated into following Michigan football and the Detroit Tigers from childhood, but her support of Arsenal, Chicago Sky, and the Chicago Red Stars is self-imposed. You can find her on Twitter at @EmCAnderson.

Kristiana Passeri, Executive Operations Coordinator, joined Sports Reference in the middle of 2024 after interning on the marketing team the previous summer. She resides in the Chicagoland area and is a fan of the Bears and Fire, as well as FC Barcelona, Argentine/US soccer and Formula One.
