NORTH LITTLE ROCK — Drew Williams, who is a Conway native and University of Central Arkansas graduate, has been named the new Director of Tickets for the Arkansas Travelers. 

A former Travs intern, Williams returns to Little Rock after a three-year stint with the St. Louis Cardinals as a Ticket Services Account Executive. .

"I am very excited for the opportunity to come back to my home state and work for a great organization like the Travelers," said Williams. "My previous three years in St. Louis were a valuable experience.  Now I’m looking forward to continuing old relationships and starting new ones with the Travs’ fan base."

Williams graduated from UCA with a degree in Business Administration. He began his career in baseball as a front office intern with the Travelers from 2007 through 2009, working with tickets, group sales, sponsorships and concessions.   He moved on to St. Louis in 2010 and spent three seasons helping to build the Cardinals’ brand through superior customer service and sales. 

"We are very excited about the new front office team that is taking shape," said Travelers President Russ Meeks.  "Drew Williams is a great addition to the excellent staff being put in place under the leadership of our acting general manager Paul Allen.  We are proud of the direction we are going."
