ZORAN RAJCIC
CSH Chief Operating Officer
Zoran Rajcic enters his fourth season as Chief Operating Officer of Consolidated Sports
Holdings (CSH) International, Inc, promoted to the position on July 14, 2016 while
continuing his timeline as a central member of the Silvertips organization and a leader in
the organization’s business and hockey operations since the club’s admittance into the
WHL in 2002.

At the head of a talented front office staff, the Silvertips under his eye earned the 2018-
19 WHL Business of the Year award (second in franchise history), back-to-back honors
in the Western Conference, and continued to surge at the box office with their largest
turnout in eight seasons, surpassing three million fans in downtown Everett and sold out
32 percent of their home games at the 8,149-seat Angel of the Winds Arena. The
Silvertips also refined their presence in marketing, broadcasting, social media, and game presentation. He
was promoted from Director of Business Operations to Assistant General Manager in October 2011 and
added the title of Executive Vice President in July 2012. Helping oversee Silvertips hockey operations, in
2018-19 the Tips captured their fourth U.S. Division title in five seasons, saw a pair of players selected in the
NHL Entry Draft, and in 2017-18 earned their second Western Conference championship, with first year
head coach Dennis Williams, who set a new franchise record for most wins (47) by a first year head coach
and earned the WHL’s Western Conference Coach of the Year honor. Silvertips general manager Garry
Davidson was the recipient of the Lloyd Saunders Memorial Trophy as WHL Executive of the Year,
goaltender Carter Hart earned his second CHL Goaltender of the Year award, and six Silvertips were either
drafted by NHL clubs or signed NHL and AHL contracts.

As Rajcic’s primary responsibilities revolve around the business and marketing affairs of the club, his
direction has helped build a strong community presence throughout Everett and its surrounding
communities. As Vice President of Silvertips parent company CSH International, Inc., he also supports the
business operations of the other sports franchises within the company.

Hailing from Lethbridge, Alberta, Rajcic is a graduate of the University of Lethbridge with a Bachelor’s
degree in Management and a major in Marketing. Upon graduation, Rajcic was named the school’s Director
of Athletic Marketing and was recognized by the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators
as the Marketer of the Year in 2000.

Prior to his work in Everett, Rajcic spent three years with the Baton Rouge Kingfish of the ECHL, serving as
the Director of Corporate Sales for one season before being promoted to Vice-President/General Manager
during his second season.

Zoran and his wife Mirran reside in Everett with their two sons, Jackson, and Aiden.

GARRY DAVIDSON
General Manager
Heading into his eighth full season as the architect of the Everett Silvertips roster,
Garry Davidson has built Silvertips hockey into a restored power program of the WHL,
routinely in contention and dispatching graduates of the club onto the highest
professional ranks. The recipient of the Lloyd Saunders Memorial Trophy as WHL
Executive of the Year (2017-18), and reigning back-to-back honoree in the Western
Conference, he brought an extensive hockey background with him to Everett when he
was named General Manager of the Silvertips in February 2012. In a career spanning
more than three decades, Davidson’s tenure in hockey includes experience as an
owner, general manager, head coach and player personnel director in the junior and
professional ranks in both North America and Europe.

Since taking over the Silvertips, Davidson has presided over a building process that
has led the franchise to significant strides on the ice with their second Western Conference title in 2017-18
and four U.S. Division titles in the last five seasons, while stocking the club’s system with exciting young
players and NHL prospects. His eye for talent has covered deep into the WHL Draft, with seven Silvertips
players reaching the professional ranks or earning a selection in the NHL Draft after original selection by the
Silvertips in rounds 3-8 of the WHL Draft. His constructed roster has evolved into six consecutive winning
seasons in franchise history to date, including the team’s seventh U.S. Division title with second year head
coach Dennis Williams and a record of 258-121-28-21 over the last six regular seasons. Since Davidson
assumed control, four Silvertips have been selected in the first or second round of the NHL Entry Draft, five
Silvertips have been taken by NHL teams in the last two years, most recently with defenseman Gianni
Fairbrother (Montreal) and goaltender Dustin Wolf (Calgary).

Before taking the reins in Everett, Davidson, 68, spent four seasons as Director of Player Personnel for the
Portland Winterhawks from 2008-11. In that role he was instrumental of Portland’s Bantam Draft selections
and scouting of recruited players who helped the program emerge from a last place finish to three straight
WHL Finals appearances.

Davidson led the BCHL’s Salmon Arm SilverBacks as Owner, General Manager and Head Coach from
2001-08. A three-time BCHL Coach of the Year, his other coaching stops in the league include Penticton,
Nanaimo, Victoria and Trail. He also oversaw all player recruiting with each of his BCHL clubs, helping
produce eventual Hockey Hall of Fame inductee and Hobey Baker Award recipient Paul Kariya, along with
two additional Hobey Baker honorees (Brendan Morrison and Ryan Duncan) and three first-round NHL draft
picks (Travis Zajac, Kris Chucko and Riley Nash) with Salmon Arm alone.

Originally from Souris, Manitoba, Davidson’s coaching career began in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League
in 1978. He then spent eight seasons coaching overseas, where he won an Austrian league championship
in 1984 and also spent time in Switzerland and Italy. He returned to North America in 1990 to coach Junior-
A in Penticton and was an Assistant Coach for Team Canada’s gold medal-winning entry at the 1995
Spengler Cup.

Residing in Everett, Garry and his wife, Brenda, have two sons: Ty, and Clay (mixed martial artist residing in
Kelowna, BC).

DENNIS WILLIAMS
Head Coach
Dennis Williams, 40 (8/14/79), enters his third season behind the bench as Silvertips head coach
and the engineer of success for the program with a pair of U.S. Division titles, a Western
Conference championship, success in the classroom and several Silvertips earning looks for
international play and selections in the NHL Entry Draft.

Named the fifth head coach in franchise history on May 15, 2017, Williams promptly embarked on
a year-long journey which broke the Silvertips record for wins by a first year head coach (47),
earned their third most points (99) in franchise history, set a new single season franchise record for
goals (246), were second in the league for goal differential (+80), and earned eight goals or more
in a game on five separate occasions. They broke single game franchise records for most goals in
a game (11) and largest margin of victory (11) on Dec. 27 in an 11-0 victory at Vancouver, while
goaltender Carter Hart earned his second CHL Goaltender of the Year award, and six different
Silvertips were drafted by NHL clubs or signed to NHL or AHL contracts. Williams followed with
another 47-win and 99-point season, the Silvertips fourth U.S. Division title in five seasons, while
goaltender Dustin Wolf was named WHL Western Conference Goaltender of the Year and CHL Scholastic Player of the Year
and two more Tips players: defenseman Gianni Fairbrother (Montreal) and Wolf (Calgary) were selected in the NHL Entry Draft.
Since Williams took over behind the Silvertips bench, Silvertips goaltenders Dustin Wolf (Hlinka Gretzky Cup, Team USA),
Carter Hart (U20 World Junior Championships, Team Canada), and defenseman Ronan Seeley (World U17 Hockey Challenge,
Team Canada White) have suited up in international competition.

Addtionally serving behind the bench on the international level with Team Canada, this summer at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup and

entire league in fewest goals against per game, and were second in the ECHL (2.3) in 2012-13, when they captured their
third straight Brabham Cup for the top regular season record in the league at 106 points, most in the ECHL since 2007-
08. During Mass’ eight-year tenure behind their bench, the Aces helped promote 69 players to the American Hockey
League level, including former Silvertips forwards John Lammers and Chris Langkow. Four players during that span

title with 113 points and a 53-12-7 record, alongside Silvertips alumnus and forward Alex Leavitt (who led the league with
