Ted Milner's Bio:
Ted Milner is president of Executive Temps, the leading employment agency in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, meeting the professional administrative needs of the entertainment industry for over 20 years. He is also a former professional baseball player who played with the St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros, California Angels and the Cleveland Indians.
Of his many accomplishments, Milner is proudest of forming Executive Temps with his partner Stacy Milner. Through this full service entertainment employment agency, Executive Temps has placed thousands of administrative and professional personnel in rewarding positions. Utilizing effective management practices, purposeful training for employees and placement of qualified temporary personnel, Ted and Stacy Milner have developed a distinguished clientele list including but not limited to Warner Bros., Disney, DreamWorks, ABC, CW, Cartoon Network, TNT, OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network), The Hub and Hasbro. Under his leadership, Executive Temps has become a highly respected household name in the entertainment industry.
Milner's most recent undertaking is the formation of the Black Baseball Players Association (BBPA), an organization created to acknowledge the contributions of the Negro League Baseball players As President of the BBPA, Milner's mission is to celebrate the past and empower the future. The Game of the Century held in 2002 at Dodger Stadium was the first of many games to be produced in the future. Retired Major League players, Hall of Famers and Negro Baseball League players all convene to provide entertainment, history and education for the crowd participants during The Game of the Century, a full 9-inning baseball game with pre-activities during the culminating week consisting of free youth baseball clinics and opportunities for the fans to meet and greet the players.
In efforts to continuously give back to his local community, Milner's vision to educate youth about our rich Black American history through baseball clinics and camps is most recently made possible through the not-for-profit Remembering When Foundation of which Milner is the Founder & CEO. The Remembering When Foundation is simply a vehicle to honor the past for the achievements of today while connecting generations of people. Students from elementary to high school ages receive free athletic training, American history lessons from former and current professional athletes and appropriate academic support when they attend the clinics and extended camps sponsored through the Foundation.
Milner, a firm believer in education, holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership from Biola University. He resides in Burbank, California with his wife and is the proud father of three children.
