Early Life and Education
David Krivsky has been an enthusiastic churchgoer since his teenage years, growing up in Charleston, West Virginia. After attending Trevecca Nazarene University and Gray’s Chapel Church of the Nazarene in Cunningham, Tennessee, he went on to plant several churches and serve on executive committees for organizations including senior high ministry. One of the most rewarding aspects of pastorate work is having the chance to minister to children of all ages; one major challenge facing family-oriented churches is staying relevant while providing engaging leadership that meets those changing needs. To combat this challenge requires being an inclusive and engaging congregational leader who can ensure youth are included and engaged members.
Krivsky made many industry-shaking moves during his tenure as general manager with the Reds. Some of these transactions paid off, others didn’t; but he got three key pieces right in his first trades with them: Bronson Arroyo, David Ross and Brandon Phillips.
Arroyo, a 2006 All-Star and pivotal part of two Cincinnati playoff teams, amassed an impressive 108-100 record with an ERA of 4.18 over his first eight seasons. Ross and Phillips both remained in the game for extended stretches; Pena, who joined from Boston after spending some time overseas playing baseball, also did well throughout his career with Cincinnati. Furthermore, Bobby Basham – whom Krivsky traded to Cleveland for Jeff Stevens – proved a reliable reliever with an effective sinker pitch as well as ability to change speeds quickly.
Achievement and Honors
David Krivsky has achieved great musical success and been honored with a variety of honors, including being nominated to the esteemed IRCAM Reading Panel.
His honorary doctorate from the University of Cincinnati is another testament to his accomplishments and education.
In his first year as the Reds general manager, he made a controversial move. Before he was hired, they traded star first baseman Sean Casey to Pittsburgh and planned on moving slugger Adam Dunn from left field to first base. This would allow Jose Pena to play every day at that position – an idea which wasn’t popular with him initially. Ultimately though, it worked out in favor of the Reds.
Krivsky was an experienced scout for both the Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins, known for his knack for making calculated decisions that paid off. For 11 years as Assistant General Manager under Terry Ryan, his knowledge of arbitration cases and contract negotiations helped transform a struggling Twins franchise into three division titles in four years. Furthermore, he excelled at juggling all the duties that come with being GM, field manager and scout on a baseball team.
Krivsky has since been appointed general manager of the Cincinnati Reds, a job which requires some skill to get underway on winning games. To date, his knowledge of baseball’s various elements has translated into an effective plan that has put them back in contention — especially considering their new stadium is one of baseball’s premier hitter’s venues.
