BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have hired Jason Sinnarajah as senior vice president of business administration.
From Toronto, Sinnarajah has sports-related experience in previously working at Google, where he managed the company’s partnerships with the NFL and NHL in providing updated search data. He also worked with baseball's Cleveland Indians on Progressive Field renovations and the team’s bid to host the 2019 All-Star Game.
Sinnarajah takes over for Dave Wheat, whose contract was not renewed in February.
The Bills’ parent company, Pegula Sports and Entertainment, also announced it has hired Mike McFarlane as vice president of finance and administration.
McFarlane has spent the past 30 years in the Buffalo area and will oversee the NHL Buffalo Sabres' day to day business operations as well as PSE’s various other entities.
The additions come after the Sabres and PSE made a series of cuts to their staffs over the past 18 months.
The cost-cutting measures intensified since the coronavirus pandemic shut down sports in March. Last month, the Sabres fired or did not renew the contracts of 22 front-office employees, scouts and developmental staff, including general manager Jason Botterill, who was replaced by Kevyn Adams.
