Bill Geivett enters his 23rd season in Major League Baseball and his 20th as a front office executive. A member of Colorado's front office since November, 2000, "Geivo" was promoted to his current position, the Rockies Senior Vice President of Major League Operations, in August of 2012. In his capacity he is responsible for working directly with Manager Walt Weiss on the day-to-day operations of the Major League club providing leadership, direction and input with the roster and field staff. Prior to assuming his present position, Geivett, 50, oversaw the Rockies player personnel and was given the additional responsibility of managing the Rockies Player Development System in 2003. In 2004, the Rockies Minor League system produced both the Minor League Player of the Year (Jeff Francis) and Minor League Rolaids Relief Man winner (Ryan Speier), the first organization to claim both awards in the same season. Then in 2007, with a World Series roster that featured 16 players who were originally drafted or signed by Colorado, the Rockies were named the Organization of the Year by Baseball America. The Rockies' National League Wildcard team of 2009 had an Opening Day lineup made up entirely of homegrown players. Bill came to the Rockies from the Los Angeles Dodgers where he had worked since September of 1998 as the Dodgers' Assistant General Manager. Prior to his position in Los Angeles, he was the Special Assistant to the General Manager for the Tampa Bay Rays and from 1994-96 he headed the Montreal Expo's Player Development System. Under his watch the Expos program was named the Topps Organization of the Year in 1996. After coaching collegiately at Loyola Marymount (1989-90) and at Long Beach State (1991), his first field position in professional baseball came in 1991 when the New York Yankees hired Geivett as a scout and organizational instructor. An All-American third baseman at the University of California-Santa Barbara, Geivett also attended Sacramento City College and was drafted four times overall during the early 1980s. After he was drafted in the 13th round of the 1985 draft, he signed a professional contract with the California Angels organization and then played four seasons until sustaining a career-ending knee injury in 1988. A member of the UC Santa Barbara Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame, Bill still holds the school single season records for average, hits, triples and runs scored. Geivett has a Master's Degree from Azusa Pacific University (1991) and is an active member for the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). Bill and his wife, Bonnie, make their home in Parker, Colorado, with their daughter Rachel and son Sam.
