Parish Mason has been promoted to Vice President of Sales by the Waterloo Black Hawks, the team announced Friday.
The coming 2021/22 season will be Mason’s fourth with the organization after he joined the team near the end of the 2018/19 schedule. In that time, he has been an important leader in several front office initiatives including the introduction of new ticketing provider Igniter, the transition to electronic ticketing, and an array contingency planning necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Mason’s responsibilities have also included building relationships with season ticket holders, corporate partners, and single-game attendees.
“The past year included many moments which challenged our organization, and Parish was always ready when we needed to do something new or different so that fans could safely enjoy coming to Young Arena,” said Black Hawks President of Business Operations Joe Greene. “This promotion recognizes his hard work and our confidence that continuing to provide Parish with new responsibilities and opportunities will position both he and the Black Hawks for additional success in the future.”
Prior to his arrival in Waterloo, Mason spent three seasons with the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs of the Southern Professional Hockey League. Originally from Peoria, Illinois, he was a 2016 graduate of Loras College in Dubuque.
The Black Hawks organization is currently preparing for the 2021/22 season after the United States Hockey League’s announcement of the schedule last week. Waterloo’s 62-game slate will begin at the USHL Fall Classic versus the Green Bay Gamblers on September 23rd. The Hawks will play their first home game of the season at Young Arena on October 1st against the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders. Season tickets for all of Waterloo’s home games are currently on sale from tickets.waterlooblackhawks.com. Single-game tickets will be available later this summer.
