MLB: Mariners president of business ops Catie Griggs resigns


Share post:

Trailblazing Seattle Mariners executive Catie Griggs resigned her position as the team’s president of business operations Friday to move closer to her family.

Griggs will leave her post later this month, at which point Mariners chairman John Stanton will serve as the interim president of business operations until a replacement is hired.

When Griggs was hired in the summer of 2021, she was the only active female president in the front office of any MLB franchise. Her previous role was chief business officer of Major League Soccer club Atlanta United.

“I’ve truly had a mix of emotions as I made the incredibly difficult decision to resign from my role as President of Business Operations,” Griggs said in a statement. “After much consideration, I have decided to prioritize our family and relocate back to the East Coast to be closer to both (her husband) Justin and my aging parents.

“My time in Seattle getting to know this community and to work with so many talented people at T-Mobile Park and beyond will always be incredibly special to me. I look forward to seeing what amazing things lie ahead for the Mariners.”
