Jeremy Aguero joining Raiders executive team

Updated October 23, 2021 - 1:40 pm

After working closely with the Raiders during their recent relocation to Las Vegas, Jeremy Aguero is joining the NFL organization in an official capacity.

Aguero is stepping down as principal analyst at Applied Analysis after 24 years with the Las Vegas-based advisory services firm to become the Raiders’ chief operations and analytics officer, the company announced Thursday.

“Jeremy Aguero is a transformational leader whose effort is a prime reason that Allegiant Stadium exists,” said Raiders President Dan Ventrelle. “He is a man of integrity who shares the Raiders’ deep commitment to the community. We are excited to build the future of the Raiders with Jeremy.”

Brian Gordon, a principal analyst and partner with Aguero at Applied Analysis since 2000, will assume the company’s primary leadership role, with the transition effective Nov. 1.

“There is no more difficult decision professionally than walking away from the company you founded,” Aguero said in a statement. “That said, I know that I am leaving it in good hands. Brian Gordon is the best analyst I have ever worked with, and the team at Applied Analysis is experienced, well-trained and infinitely capable. I am grateful beyond words for the people I have had the opportunity to work with and the clients I have had the opportunity to work for.”

Aguero serves as staff for the Las Vegas Stadium Authority and is a regular at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor Authority board meetings, providing financial-related presentations to the board. As one of the valley’s top economists, he’s been pegged for his economic expertise by everyone from large corporations to unions as well as state and local governments.

Steve Hill, LVCVA CEO and president, who also serves as director of the Stadium Authority, has worked closely with Aguero over the years. Hill stressed the value of the work Aguero has carried out during that time.

“Jeremy’s combination of exceptional talent and consistent commitment has made him a community leader who is relied upon for both his work and his judgment,” Hill said. “I’m excited for Jeremy and look forward to working with him in his new role. The Raiders are fortunate to have him.”

Aguero said he’s departing from his longtime employer for one reason only.

“My decision to leave is based solely on my desire to take on a new challenge and to help Mr. (Mark) Davis achieve his vision, not only for the Las Vegas Raiders but also for our community,” Aguero said, referring to the owner of the Raiders.
