Bill Pedigo joined the Anaheim Ducks in April of 2016 as Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. In this capacity, Pedigo oversees the organization's major revenue areas including corporate partnerships, premium seating and ticketing. He also oversees Honda Center's various venue related events, including FivePoint Arena at the Great Park and THE RINKS revenue related operations.
Pedigo's career began in Kansas City with the NFL Chiefs, where he spent five seasons. Pedigo worked his way from intern to Manager of Corporate Partnerships (1996-2001). In 2001, he returned to his native Orange County and joined the Disney-owned Anaheim Sports in the corporate partnership department working for both the Angels and Ducks. Disney split the shared service group into two the following season and Pedigo spent the next four-plus seasons dedicated to the Angels corporate sales team.
Following his time with the Angels, Pedigo spent eight-plus years with AEG, including the role of Senior Vice President of the Global Partnerships division, overseeing a large portion of AEG's Southern California portfolio. During his time with AEG, Pedigo led numerous landmark partnership deals that featured two facility naming rights agreements and the LA Galaxy's 10-year multi-million dollar jersey relationship with Herbalife. In 2013 he left AEG to join the Competitor Group as Chief Revenue officer. There he oversaw sponsorship revenue of the 35+ Rock n' Roll Marathon events and eight TriRock Triathlon events as well as all digital and print advertising efforts for their various websites and print publications. Highlights of Pedigo's time with the Competitor Group included four new event naming rights agreements and multi-year multi-million dollar deals with series wide partners Toyota and Humana. He remained with the Competitor Group until 2015 when he moved to San Clemente-based Nitro Circus to run North American sales.
