Brandon Hamilton - VP, Stadium Operations & Facilities, Kansas City Chiefs, US
Brandon Hamilton has been serving his 12th year with the National Football League (NFL) as well as with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was named Kansas City’s Vice-President of Stadium Operations and Facilities on May 4th, 2017 and is entering his 12th season with the Chiefs in 2021.
In his current role, Hamilton oversees all aspects of stadium systems, stadium maintenance and the stadium grounds for both GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium and The University of Kansas Health System Training Complex.
In addition to regular maintenance of facilities and systems, Hamilton has overseen a number of stadium construction and renovation projects over the past few years, including a three‐year seat replacement project, technology upgrades to the end zone scoreboards, suite upgrades and a complete Team Store remodel.
With the coronavirus pandemic forcing the adoption of new COVID‐19 protocols across the National Football League, Hamilton was appointed as a member of the club’s Stadium Emergency Response Team, serving as the stadium’s Infection Control Officer in 2020. His team was a critical component in the successful relocation of training camp to the GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium and the University of Kansas Health System Training Complex due to NFL coronavirus policies.
In addition, Hamilton and the stadium operations staff were heavily involved in planning for the return of staff and fans to the venue, including the ordering and maintaining of cleaning products, equipment and PPE, as well as enhanced cleaning and sanitization plans for both the stadium and practice facility. Under his guidance, both the stadium and the practice facility achieved GBAC STAR Facility Accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council after demonstrating the proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques and work practices to combat biohazards and infectious disease.
Prior to being named Vice-President of Stadium Operations and Facilities, Hamilton served as the club’s Director of Facilities for seven seasons (2010‐2016). Hamilton also directs the club’s Extra Yard for the Environment program, a sustainability initiative designed to devise and implement new environmentally-friendly policies. The program currently focuses on waste diversion, energy efficiency and recycling at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, The University of Kansas Health System Training Complex and encourages fans to examine their sustainability efforts at home. Hamilton continues to work with the national supply chain members to transform back‐of‐the‐house concession waste into compostable products that can be diverted.
