Mark Tamar joined the Chargers in 2017 with more than 25 years of experience in the field – the last five as Managing Director of Fan Development and Game Presentation for the Seahawks – and was a driving force behind Seattle’s highly-regarded game entertainment and fan experience initiatives.
A veteran of big event entertainment, from the Super Bowl to venue production at the XXVIII Olympic Games in Athens, Tamar has worked in every major North American sports league during his career.
A graduate of UCLA, Tamar began his career in sports entertainment as a producer for the Los Angeles Lakers during the team’s late 1980s championship runs before moving across town to lead the game entertainment efforts for the Los Angeles Dodgers over the next decade. He then joined the NHL’s Washington Capitals as senior director of game operations. Over the course of his seven-plus years in the nation’s capital, Washington won multiple awards for game presentation. Staying in the NHL, Tamar joined the St. Louis Blues as vice president of game entertainment and event marketing in 2007. During his tenure, the Blues received recognition as the best entertainment show in hockey – an award voted on by Tamar’s peers.
Tamar also handled entertainment for the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer, adding new innovations to one of soccer’s most rabid fan bases.
