Ep. 27: Tambra Brenner

When I first started this podcast last fall, covering all things Pacers, Tambra Brenner was one of several individuals — beyond the coaches and players — at Pacers Sports & Entertainment I thought fans would enjoy hearing from.

Brenner has worked for Pacers Sports & Entertainment since 2012.

Brenner has worked for Pacers Sports & Entertainment since 2012.

Brenner is the travel specialist at PS&E. Her primary responsibilities include managing the travel for the 10 scouts or so employed by the team. Most of them typically spend more than 220 days on the road and Brenner can help ease that challenge and hopefully make it a smooth process.

She also manages the travel for any guys the Pacers bring in, like the draft hopefuls. Over the last month and a half, she’s booked flights and hotels for nearly 50 prospects. There is also free-agent camp, Summer League, and signings come free agency in July.

Meantime, scouting is a 365-day job so once the draft is over, they’re continuing their research and evaluation for future years.

I hope that you enjoy this unique interview.
