With the soccer season nearly half over and indoor football season just a few months away, the St. Louis Ambush and Attack have continued to add to the front office, the latest hires being Kevin Fowler (Director of Digital Media), Dylan Anderson (sales) and Ian Fruend (Director of Merchandise, Camps and Clinics).

Fowler, who was born in raised in St. Louis, is a 2010 graduate of Hazelwood West High School and 2014 graduate of Webster University. While at Webster, Fowler earned a BA in Media Communications and minored in Audio Production. He recently completed a fall internship with the St. Louis Ambush.

“Kevin did an outstanding job with us during his internship, and we knew fairly quickly that his video production talents and willingness to stay flexible would eventually make him a great addition to our staff,” said Ambush and Attack owner Andrew Haines. “We’ve always said that in the right situation, we want to offer our interns the opportunity to come on full-time, and Kevin’s talents and work ethic made this an easy decision.”

Anderson was born in Kusel, Germany, and moved to Wentzville in 1997. He attended Holt High School and knew during his time there that he wanted to pursue a career in sales. He is currently attending St. Charles Community College, where he is pursuing a degree in Business Administration with a focus on Marketing. Anderson was an intern with the Ambush from July to November, 2014, before becoming a full-time Sales Executive.

“Very soon after Dylan started with us, we knew his outgoing personality and sense of humor would make him a great fit,” said Haines. “He’s done a great job helping us to increase our ticket sales with the Ambush and we are excited to have him with us full-time.”

Fruend is a St. Charles native who attended Lutheran High School in St. Charles and recently graduated from Missouri State University in Springfield, MO, with a degree in Recreation, Sport, and Park Administration. Prior to accepting his new position, Fruend worked in sales, community relations and game day operations while interning with the Ambush.

“Ian took it upon himself to take charge of all things merchandise during his internship with us,” said Haines. “He put in a lot of hours and earned this opportunity. We know he’s going to do a great job for us on a full-time basis just as he did as an intern.”

All three new hires will begin their full-time jobs on January 1, 2015.
