The Melfort Mustangs have announced the hiring Mat Barrett as their Director of Marketing and Business.
Originally from Edmonton, Barrett has been in Melfort since April of 2017 and previously worked with the radio station in Melfort, now run by Pattison Media. He has been the Mustangs play-by-play voice for the last three seasons as well, which included the Mustangs run to the SJHL Finals in 2019.
“I am extremely excited for this new challenge in my career,” Barrett said. “I look forward to working with our sponsors and community members to help continuously building the Mustangs organization into the best club in the SJHL.”
Barrett will be in charge of corporate sales, ticket sales, media, and more with the Mustangs.
“As an organization, we are very excited to add Mat to the team,” said President Chad Elliott. For us it’s an easy transition with all the time he has spent in and around our organization. From the voice of the Mustangs, to volunteering with all game day and team events, there is lots to learn but he has the drive to get the job done.”
Barrett’s official first day on the job is July 27. Any corporate sponsors or prospective volunteers can contact Mat at the Mustangs office at 306-752-2799 or at email@example.com
