The Milwaukee Brewers and American Family Insurance announced their new partnership for the naming rights to Miller Park.
American Family CEO Jack Salzwedel says this is a part of a larger effort for his company to create a new office location in Milwaukee.”And a strategy that includes more jobs, and jobs in the software engineering and data science area. And we’ve been working very closely with the Mayor to look at different sites.”
Brewers officials say that MillerCoors will continue to be a strong partner with the team, and that you’re not going to see them leaving Milwaukee baseball any time soon.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says he’s happy to be a part of the process. “The city of Milwaukee is very excited about this. We think that this is a beautiful relationship that’s going to grow even stronger between your company and this city.”
The actual name of the park and other branding issues will be discussed at a later date.
