In January 2012, Kim Brodie started with the Red Wings as executive assistant to general manager Ken Holland and immigration manager for players, coaches and staff throughout the organization.
Besides working closely with the GM, Brodie sees to team-related matters for senior vice president Jim Devellano, assistant GM Ryan Martin and coach Jeff Blashill. She also handles all travel planning for management, coaches and players in Detroit and Grand Rapids.
Brodie grew up in Willis, Michigan, where she showed horses, and played volleyball and softball through high school. She later attended Washtenaw Community College and Eastern Michigan University, where she studied criminal justice.
After college, Brodie went to work at Domino's Pizza in Ann Arbor, where she held several different jobs during a 20-year career - the last 16 as executive assistant to the chief financial officer and vice president of finance. Brodie was part of the initial public offering (IPO) team that transitioned Domino's to a public company, and she was on the management team that facilitated the 1992 sale of the Detroit Tigers to Red Wings owners Mike and Marian Ilitch.
Brodie is passionately involved with Special Olympics Michigan, the Humane Society of Huron Valley and the Multiple Sclerosis Society. She enjoys paddle boarding, bicycling, gardening, and spending time outdoors with family. She has a son Matt, daughter-in-law Lisa, and grandson Austin.
Brodie lives with her husband Chris, and their two rescue dogs, in Milan, Mich.
