SAM KENNEDY became President of the Boston Red Sox on October 16, 2015, succeeding President/CEO emeritus Larry Lucchino, and then was elevated to CEO in August 2017. As President, Kennedy has oversight over the club and its operations. In addition to his Red Sox role, Kennedy is also President and CEO of Fenway Sports Management (FSM), which he helped to create in 2004. Prior to assuming the role of club President, Kennedy served as Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer from September 2009 to October 2015. One of Kennedy’s proudest accomplishments is the wide range of fans that have experienced Fenway Park’s unique charm due to the expansion of entertainment offerings at the ballpark including concerts, ice hockey games, and soccer matches.
