BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College Senior Associate Athletics Director Jon Anderson '75 announced the hiring of Ilyza Holman as the department's new athletics facilities manager on Friday morning.
Holman comes to Babson following an eight-month stint working as a program director for the Edge Sports Group (ESG Associates). While with ESG she managed schedules, reviewed tenant contracts, supported sales activities, managed in-house leagues and events, assisted in developing content for social media accounts, and was responsible for the creation and maintenance of the soon-to-open Boston Sports Institute in Wellesley.
"I am pleased to announce Ilyza as our new facilities manager," commented Anderson. "Her background as a college athlete and her experience with ESG Associates have prepared her well for this position. Her energy and enthusiasm for this new role are going to be imperative as we continue to enhance the student-athlete experience with the opening of BRAC."
A two-sport athlete, Holman graduated with her bachelor of science degree in physical education from Endicott College in 2017. She was a three-year outfielder for the Gulls' softball team and part of the program's 2014 Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Tournament championship, while also playing two seasons of basketball from 2015-17.
In her new position at Babson, Holman will assist in the overall maintenance and scheduling coordination for the department's 22 varsity teams in the new Babson Athletics and Recreation Complex (BRAC). She also will work closely with HealthFitness and serve as the athletics department's liaison to multiple campus groups to ensure optimal operation of the BRAC facilities.
"I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to join the team at Babson," said Holman. "I'm thrilled to get started in this new role during such an exciting time for both the College and the department, and hope to help our athletics programs enjoy continued success."
A native of nearby Ashland, Holman earned her masters of education degree in athletic administration from Endicott in 2018.
