Brett Galley serves as the director of special events to Hollywood Pop Gallery, a full service Event Planning, Design & Destination management Company with entertainment and name talent booking capabilities. They are considered one of the top luxury brand, boutique Event Design companies around the world.

When she finds time away from work, Brett Galley enjoys taking in the games of her favorite professional sports teams, the New York Jets and the New York Mets.

Heading into the 2016 season, the New York Mets organization announced that it has extended its player development contract with the Binghamton Mets, the franchise’s AA affiliate located approximately 185 miles northeast of New York City. Under the current contract, the two teams’ affiliation would end in 2017, but the new contract extends the agreement through the 2020 season.

The Mets’ arrangement with the AA team has proved valuable over the years because Binghamton’s close geographical proximity to New York provides the Mets with an easily reachable pool of emergency backup players. This is not the case with the Mets’ other Minor League affiliates, which are located in Nevada, Florida, and Georgia.
