The Steinbach Pistons would like to welcome Jamie Roy as the club’s new Sales and Marketing Manager. Fans may have seen Roy on game days or recognized his voice in the arena as the team’s PA announcer for the past four seasons.
You may also remember Roy from his recent two-year tenure on the airwaves of Golden West Radio here in Steinbach bringing you the latest news. He then went on to the University of Manitoba where he continues to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Agribusiness.
Roy was born and raised in the southeast, and prides himself on being one of the few Frenchmen to reside in Kleefeld. When not in the office, he can be easily spotted at local golf courses trying to sharpen his game for the annual Steiner Cup between Quarry Oaks and the Steinbach Fly-In. Roy also participated in our annual golf tournament last year, as a celebrity, after capturing Golf Manitoba’s Rural Amateur Championship last August in Neepawa.
In his time as PA announcer Roy says he has gotten a good grasp of how the Pistons organization operates, how it treats its fans, players, staff, volunteers and the community, and adds that is why he was so excited to come on board. “I have nothing but great things to say about this organization and the way they have treated me as a volunteer,” says Roy. “It’s very clear that the board and staff want to be a successful team on and off the ice while also giving back to the community whenever they can and that is what I want to be a part of.”
“We are excited to have Jamie come on board with us as his skill set and personality will be an excellent fit. He has a strong passion for this community and region and a good understanding of our program, our goals and values,” says Head Coach/GM Paul Dyck.
At this time the Pistons would like to thank Lucas Pappel for his hard work and contributions to our club these past two years. We wish Lucas well in all his future endeavours.
Roy’s first day on the job was May 4th, 2020 and he is ready to get the ball rolling. “Although things are slowly starting to open up, there is still a lot of uncertainty out there,” he shares, “but we want to try and be as optimistic as possible and continue moving ahead with plans for a great upcoming season in fall along with the help of our partners and our supportive community.”
