Brian Cashman has been the General Manager and Senior Vice-President of the New York Yankees since 1998 or, at the close of the 2017 campaign, for twenty seasons.

He began as an intern with the club in 1986, working in the minor league scouting department by day and in security at night.

After graduating with a major in history in 1989 from The Catholic University of America, a private university located in Washington, D.C., and where he was a four-year starter at second base for the Catholic Cardinals, the Yankees offered him a full-time position as a baseball operations assistant.
