Miami Marlins Tap Rutgers Alum O’Connor as President of Business Ops
The Miami Marlins continue to make historic marks off the field. Two years after the organization named former Yankees excutive Kim Ng as the first female General Manager, the Marlins promoted Caroline O’Connor as President of Baseball Operations. This is the first time that a Major League team is women in two of the biggest baseball front office jobs possible at General Manager of President of Baseball Operations.
O’Connor is a New Jersey native, having grown up in Freehold, and attended school collegiately at Rutgers University where she majored in computer science according to NJ.com.

O’Connor got into the Marlins interview after interviewing with then part-owner and CEO Derek Jeter — a player that O’Connor had grown up watching as a Yankees fan. O’Connor officially joined the Marlins in 2017 as Jeter’s senior vice president and chief of staff, then became chief operating officer in 2019.
