EVERETT – The Everett Silvertips announced the appointment of Assistant General Manager Zoran Rajcic to Executive Vice President of both the Silvertips and parent company CSH International, Inc on Monday. Rajcic, who was promoted to Assistant General Manager last October, will continue to oversee business operations for the Silvertips while expanding his role with other CSH properties.
“Zoran has earned the title of Executive Vice President by proving over the past ten years that he is one of the best in the industry,” said Silvertips and CSH President Gary Gelinas. “With Garry Davidson handling the hockey side and Zoran taking the lead on the business side, we’ve reaffirmed our commitment to keep improving the Silvertips organization. While his focus will remain in Everett, Zoran’s expertise and skill set will also be a great resource for the other CSH teams and future properties as we continue to grow.”
An original member of the Silvertips franchise since its inception in 2002, Rajcic is currently preparing for his tenth season in Everett. Over the past decade he has overseen business operations for one of the most successful organizations in the Western Hockey League, helping the ‘Tips build and continually grow their fan base, community presence and business relationships throughout Snohomish County and the surrounding areas. His outstanding body of work was recognized by the WHL in 2010 with the league’s Marketing Award.
“I’m thankful to our owner Bill Yuill for giving me the opportunity to start with the Silvertips years ago, and it’s an honor now to have my roles within his company expanded,” Rajcic said. “I look forward to working with the teams that President Gary Gelinas has under the CSH International umbrella and will work hard to help make the business operations of all CSH teams thriving examples within the sports industry.”
