Brad Phinney, entering his 20th season with the Raiders, first as Chief Experience Officer, possesses two decades of experience with the Silver and Black, holding leadership positions that have included oversight of content and production. Hired first by Al Davis, Phinney has spent the past decade working closely with Mark Davis to shape the look and feel of the team's in-stadium presentation and video and broadcast programming across several platforms.
Prior to his role as Chief Experience Officer, Phinney held various positions within Silver and Black Productions, the production arm for the Raiders, including stints as an intern, producer, editor, director, and show caller for live events and in-stadium productions. More recently, Phinney had the opportunity to make many A/V scope-related decisions for the design-build of Allegiant Stadium and Intermountain Health Performance Center, including the build-out of two video control rooms, and the organization's broadcast studios, Cox Studios, located at the team's headquarters in Henderson, Nev. To date, Silver and Black Productions has earned 15 regional Emmy Awards.
Born and raised in the East Bay, Phinney earned his bachelor's degree in communication with a focus on sports management from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Phinney and his wife, Casey, have two sons, Graham, and Blake, and have now called Southern Nevada home for five years.
