Emily Jaenson’s motto is, "be so good they won't forget you!" and this motto has carried her through her career on a non-linear path to general manager of the Triple-A Reno Aces. Currently, she’s the only woman general manager in Triple-A baseball and the first in almost 20 years. Jaenson’s role as GM is to lead day to day business operations for baseball, including the event experience, community engagement, marketing and media, and contribute to the sponsorship team. In the four years Jaenson has worked for the Aces she’s never missed budget in her personal sponsorship goal.
Jaenson is on a mission to bring excellence and intention to her job every day so that she can shine the light for other women to pursue roles traditionally held by men.
She and her husband, Navy veteran Shawn Jaenson, have two young sons, Magnus and Anders.
