Paul DePodesta

Paul worked in the front offices of Major League Baseball for over 20 years and is well known internationally for his contributions to the "Moneyball" era when he and Billy Beane managed a small group of undervalued professional baseball players and executives, many of whom had been rejected as unfit for the big leagues, who had turned themselves into one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball. The story culminated into both a NY Times Bestselling book by Michael Lewis and blockbuster movie featuring Brad Pitt titled, MONEYBALL.

Paul is currently at the Cleveland Browns. He was previously the Vice President of the New York Mets and formerly served as the General Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
