Ethan Holmes

Video Production Manager

Holmes joined the Checkers staff in the summer of 2018. As video production manager, his duties include shooting and editing video content for web and social media, as well as content that plays in game on the video board.

While he was born on the border of Canada, Ethan’s love of hockey didn’t blossom until college, when he would regularly get together with die hard hockey fans to watch games. Holmes is a 2016 graduate of the University of Valley Forge, earning a degree in video production. When he isn’t exploring new places around Charlotte with family and friends, you might find him enjoying a stroll on the rail trail with his dog Kevin. Prior to joining the Checkers, Holmes spent two years as a camera and jib operator for NBC Sports Philadelphia, and one year as the Multimedia Developer for Children’s Literacy Initiative - a national non profit based in Philadelphia.
