Storm owner John Dawson announced this morning that former Director of
Communications and Operations Brian Rothenberger has been promoted to the role of Team President.
“Brian has a proven track record of success in every position he has held, both with the Storm and
previous companies he has worked for,” said Dawson. “He has proven his abilities in managing our dayto-day operations through all the challenges of the pandemic, and now with our season being canceled
for 20/21. I am proud to promote Brian to President of the Quad City Storm and have complete
confidence that the Storm will emerge stronger than before for the 2021-2022 season.”
Rothenberger has worked for the Storm since the 2018-2019 Inaugural Season. He served as the team’s
Broadcaster and Communications Manager, Director of Communications and most recently as Director
of Communications and Operations.
“I am excited for this opportunity and grateful to John and Missy for trusting me to lead this
organization,” said Rothenberger. “The Quad Cities has such a rich hockey history and it is a great honor
to be a part of it. I am looking forward to the exciting things we have planned this “offseason” and share
the sentiment with all of our fans that next season cannot get here soon enough!”
