River Bandits' General Manager Jacqueline Holm is in her 4th season with the club, her eighth in baseball. She has spent the last three seasons as the team's Assistant General Manager. Under her leadership, the River Bandits added to their sales staff and saw a large jump in group sales. She directed the overhaul of the team’s daily and season-long promotions, including a well-received list of giveaway items. The Bandits social media pages have also shown impressive growth under Holm. The team’s Twitter page has gained 5,000 followers and the Instagram page has gained 4,000 followers.
Jacqueline is deeply involved with the Quad Cities Community; she works with several organizations to perpetuate the team's commitment to be the most giving team in Minor League Baseball. She serves as a member of the Davenport Rotary as the Local Community Service and Young Professionals Committee Chair for the club, and was recently elected to the Board of Directors. She also serves on the Quad Cities March of Dimes Board and the Quad Cities Young Professional #QC2030 program, an initiative to cultivate and retain influencers and business owners in the Quad Cities area.
Jacqueline is an advocate for female leadership and mentorship in the Quad Cities and beyond. She served on a distinguished member of the "Women in Baseball" panel during the 2017 Baseball Winter Meetings in Orlando, is a member of the inaugural "LIFT" program for MiLB, and serves as a mentor for two local sports management majors in the Quad Cities through the Lead(her) program. She is also one of only seven female General Managers in Minor League Baseball.
Prior to joining the Quad Cities River Bandits, Jacqueline spent four seasons in the Atlantic League with the Sugar Land Skeeters. She began as an intern in their inaugural season of 2012 and continued on for three additional seasons, ultimately becoming the Director of Corporate Partnerships and the teams on-field emcee. Some of her favorite memories from that time include the reprise of Roger Clemens baseball career, seeing Tracy McGrady take the mound (yes, the former Houston Rockets basketball player), hosting the 2014 All-Star Game, meeting Pete Rose, and working closely with Tal Smith and Deacon Jones.
Jacqueline is a native of Sugar Land, Texas and resides in Davenport. She is a graduate of Texas State University with a Major in Public Relations and a minor in Sports Management Law.
