EVP Business Development, Community Relations & Hockey Partnerships
Jamie Spencer serves as the Executive Vice President of Business Development and is in his 19th season with the Minnesota Wild. He is responsible for exploring and spearheading endeavors for the organization to encompass cross-campus initiatives within TRIA Rink at Treasure Island Center, the historic Minnesota Club at 317 Washington Street and Xcel Energy Center. Spencer also oversees the Wild’s community relations and hockey partnerships department.
Since returning to the Wild in 2014, Spencer has played an integral part in several business ventures such as: Herbie’s on the Park, a quintessential social house inspired by the legacy of Herb Brooks, located at the Minnesota Club; State of Hockey, a Minnesota hockey-themed website that includes retail; and the Wild’s new practice facility, TRIA Rink at Treasure Island Center in downtown Saint Paul, which serves as the home arena to the 2019 National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) Champion’s Minnesota Whitecaps.
From 2011-14, Spencer served as the Executive Vice President of Sales with the Tampa Bay Lightning where he was a force behind tripling the season ticket holder base and more than doubling overall ticket revenue and retail sales. He is one of the founding staff members that helped launch the Minnesota Wild in 1997 where he was largely responsible for cultivating a fan base and reputation for customer service.
A hockey player himself, Spencer captained the Wisconsin Badgers (1991-95) which won the WCHA Final Five Championship his senior season. He continues to use his competitive spirit for good, championing efforts to raise funds for causes dear to his heart by serving on the board for The Hendrickson Foundation and serving as the Chair of the Special Olympics Minnesota board.
Spencer and his wife, Kindra, have three children.
