Sr. Director of Target Field Events
David Christie joined the Minnesota Twins Organization in 2009 as they were preparing to move into their new home, Target Field, as well as launch a new line of business in the Tour and Events Industry. Under the leadership of Christie and his team, this new line of business generated over 350 events and exceeded projected revenue by 370% in 2010, the first year of operations. Business has remained strong; continuing to average 300+ events per year. In addition, Target Field has hosted a number of 40,000 person concerts, a professional soccer match, and the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.
Prior to his position with the Twins, Christie served as the Event Services Director for 11 years at the National Sports Center, a 660-acre multi-purpose events and sports complex in Blaine, MN.
