Payton Lawson, the Manager of Business Operations for the Seattle Seawolves, masterfully combines his passion for sports with sharp business insight. His role encompasses a wide array of duties including managing merchandise, corporate sponsor fulfillment and relationship management, overseeing matchday operations, and everything in between. Payton’s enthusiasm for sports began with his playing soccer from a young age. Through college, he gained a rich and well-rounded perspective on the sports industry, working in WSU Athletics and the Seattle Mariners, and interning with our very own team, the Seawolves! Working with the Seawolves has presented an opportunity for Payton to couple his love of sports and mind for business, as well as a chance to grow his career along with the Seawolves’ expansion as a team. The exhilaration of game day kickoffs is something he greatly looks forward to. Says Payton: “I love how the stadium goes quiet and all you hear is the kick of the ball, the cleats hitting the turf, and the first big hit on the field.”
