MLBPA Executive Director 1983-2009
"I had the pleasure of working with Greg for nearly a decade when I served as the Executive Director of the Major League Baseball Players Association. I found him to be one of the hardest working and knowledgeable professionals in the industry, and relied on his expertise in a number of areas to help support our expanding labor relations, group licensing and non-profit efforts, as he helped establish our first fully functioning communications department."

His career arc has coincided with the digital age, and he has been an early adopter of the technology at each stage of its growth. Greg’s knowledge, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit would be assets to any individual or organization looking to maximize their digital communications efforts.”

“I have taken great pride in watching Greg’s career unfold, and I view him as one of the sports industry’s top communications professionals. When I promoted Greg to run the Islanders’ PR department at just 26, it was because of his ability to connect with future hall of fame athletes, poise under pressure, work ethic and progressive approach to tackling every challenge – traits he has maintained throughout his career."

“If a professional athlete is looking for guidance and support as they try to navigate and manage their own personal brand, social impact efforts or communications activities, I would highly recommend Greg Bouris. With his vast background and experiences working with professional athletes, he would provide invaluable insight, direction and the planning required to help an athlete take advantage of his or her platform. I have had the opportunity to work with him for many years and Greg gets it. He knows our priorities, demands and time limitations, and he has a unique capability of developing programs and partnerships that return positive results for all involved.”

There’s not a personality too big—or too small—that he hasn’t handled with deftness and generosity, always finding that sweet spot that leaves everybody satisfied, even in stressful times."
