A couple of key new hires who began work earlier this month for Railers HC, the Worcester Railers minor league hockey team, have helped the club continue its push toward being ready for its August 2017 debut and ECHL-mandated goals such as season-ticket sales.

Mike Fisher was hired this month as director of hockey club memberships and Jillian Witkowski of Leicester was tapped in April as community development coordinator.

“They’re both good, young people with key jobs in the organization,” Railers owner Cliff Rucker said.

“For Mike [Fisher], it’s selling, selling, selling. His goal will be to get us to our goal of 1,500 memberships before we enter next season,” Mike Myers, Railers president, said Friday, June 18.

The team must sell 1,500 season tickets, not to mention secure $250,000 in annual corporate sponsorships, to ensure it can begin ECHL play.
