Mike Plant - Atlanta Braves
Mike Plant, President of Development for the Atlanta Braves
Mike Plant was named President of Development for the Atlanta Braves in April of
2016, after serving 13 years as Braves’ Executive Vice President of Business Operations. His responsibilities include overseeing all stadium operations, security, finance, personnel and special events, as well as the operations of the minor league clubs.

As part of the Braves executive leadership team, Plant was instrumental in the Braves’ efforts to secure SunTrust Park and its mixed-use development, and continues to manage the planning and execution of the construction projects, which are scheduled to open in Cobb County in 2017.

Plant joined the Braves after having served as Executive Vice President of Turner Sports since February 2002. In that position, he was in charge of the day-to-day operations of the division, a $500-million acquisition, promotion and production company that broadcast approximately 1,200 hours of sports programming on various Turner networks.
