Chris Almendarez Promoted to GM of Round Rock Express

Chris Almendarez Promoted to GM of Round Rock Express

Sept. 20, 2013

ROUND ROCK, Texas - Former Houston Baseball letterman ('95) and Round Rock Express Assistant General Manager Chris Almendarez was recently promoted to General Manager (GM), overseeing all business and baseball operations for the Texas Rangers' Triple-A affiliate in Round Rock, Texas.

The former Houston student-athlete played for the Cougars during the 1995 season with current Houston head coach Todd Whitting. He appeared in 22 games - holding a .278 average with five runs scored.

Almendarez was part of a few changes within Ryan-Sanders Baseball - with the introduction of Ryan-Sanders Sports Services ("RSSS"), announced this week. According to the Round Rock Express, RSSSS will serve as the umbrella for all food service and retail operations at Dell Diamond, as well as the management of the United Heritage Center and Ryan-Sanders Sports Turf Services.

Express Executive Vice President and General Manager George King will step down from that role and take the reigns as President of Ryan-Sanders Sports Services, effective immediately.

With that change, Almendarez was promoted to that role, while Express President Dave Fendrick remains in his position throughout this transition.

"Chris has been an integral part of this organization since he joined the Express and he's a natural fit to step up and lead the business side of the team as General Manager," Fendrick said. "I look forward to his leadership as the Express celebrates our 15th season." (courtesy of Round Rock Express

Almendarez joined the Express front office in 2009 as a senior account executive. He was promoted to Senior Vice President/Assistant General Manager following the 2012 season. Prior to joining the Express, Almendarez, a Humble, Texas native, worked in pharmaceutical sales, serving as a professional sales consultant for SkinMedica Pharmaceuticals. A graduate of the University of Houston and former member of the Houston Cougars baseball team, he and his wife Jana reside in Round Rock with their two sons. (courtesy of Round Rock Express)
