Management Summary

Barney's Bullpen will be a for-profit North Dakota Limited Liabilities Corporation (LLC). 

The following is a summary of the management team:

Barney Crouch has 10+ years of management experience in the manufacturing industry. He served the community for four years on the local youth baseball board, and also served a term last year as Vice President of the league. Barney played competitive baseball for 12 years, and coached baseball and basketball teams for six years.

7.1 Personnel Plan

The following table is a projection of personnel. The only full-time employee is Barney Crouch; Jen will work part-time as our bookkeeper and fill in as a supervisor when needed. We will hire up to two part-time employees to help with cleaning and cage reset, but at least one of these positions will be largely seasonal. We expect to draw our part-time employees from boys we know on the local high-school baseball team.

Our instructors are independent contractors; their fees are listed as direct cost of sales in the Sales Forecast table.
