Chris Junghans
Senior Vice President, Corporate Partnerships

Chris Junghans (Twitter: @cjjunghans) enters his seventh season as Senior Vice President, Corporate Development for the Predators and Bridgestone Arena and his 13th season with the company.  New this season, Junghans will participate on the Fundraising Committee for the 2016 NHL® All-Star Game in Nashville. In his tenure as Senior Vice President, both the Premium Seats and Sponsorship departments have achieved double-digit revenue growth every season.

Junghans has been instrumental in growing and expanding Predators’ partnerships to introduce new and unique products like the Lexus Lounge and Beneath the Ice to Smashville fans. Junghans has led the organization’s efforts in securing long-term partnerships with such companies as Nissan North America, Dunkin Donuts, Yazoo Brewing Company and AT&T.  The Premium Seats department has grown exponentially under his watch with products such as the Lexus Lounge, Lexus Inner Circle, Opera Boxes, Bench Seats and the Cumberland 501 Club becoming available to fans during his time with the organization.

Prior to his role as Senior Vice President, Junghans led the Premium Seats division for the Predators and Bridgestone Arena.  During his tenure as both a Director and Vice President, he was able to develop key products and services that led to a 100 percent increase in sales.  In addition, he successfully directed the single largest renewal in company history – achieving a 125 percent renewal rate. 

Junghans started his career with the Florida Panthers as a Ticket Sales Account Executive and quickly moved through the ranks.  While in Florida, Chris developed programs and services that led to significant increases in both Group and Suite Sales.  

Born in Washington, D.C., Junghans is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  Among his many accomplishments, including being selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 11th Round of the 1993 Major League Baseball Draft, he ranks his family as his biggest accomplishment.  He married his high school sweetheart, Carolina in 1999 and they have three children – Lia (14), Alex (10) and Sofie (6).  Junghans currently serves on the East Williamson Athletics Board of Directors and enjoys coaching youth baseball in his spare time.
