Brandon Hamilton was named Kansas City's Vice President of Stadium Operations and Facilities on May 4, 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. Prior to the 2021 season, Hamilton has been managing the complete reimagination of the Chiefs Hall of Honor in the stadium's lower level concourse, as well as the renovation of the club's home locker room complex at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.
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 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 (2010-16). As the Director of Facilities, he was responsible for facility management of both the stadium and the club's practice facility and office complex.
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 national supply chain members to transform back-of-the-house concession waste into compostable products that can be diverted.
In May 2021 Hamilton was named to the Board of Directors of the Green Sports Alliance, an environmentally focused 501c(6) trade organization that convenes stakeholders from around the sports world to promote healthy, sustainable communities.
Prior to joining the Chiefs in 2010, Hamilton served as Program Manager at The Konrath Group. During his time there he worked on the Arrowhead Stadium renovation that took place between 2007-10. Before that he spent a decade working in residential construction as a builder and superintendent.
Hamilton majored in geology and geography at Northwest Missouri State and completed studies at IAVM Venue Management School in 2014.
