Overview

The Princess of Darkness. Former NFL team executive Amy Trask has held many titles during her career - including chief executive, analyst, and author - but this nickname is what she is first and foremost known by to Raiders fans. Trask joined the Raiders as an intern during law school after the team moved from Oakland to Los Angeles - the position the result of a cold call she made to the team. From there, she worked her way up through the ranks of the organization, to the post she would eventually hold as chief executive. Along the way, Trask worked extremely closely with the late Al Davis, a man who treated her and others on his team without regard to gender, race, and age. Trask may have been the highest-ranking female executive in the NFL during her tenure with the Raiders, but in You Negotiate Like a Girl: Reflections on a Career in the National Football League, she shares how she found success by operating without regard to gender. Replete with insider tales about being part of the Raiders' front office, behind the closed doors of NFL owners meetings, and Davis himself, Trask's book is a must-read not only for football fans, but anyone who wants to succeed in business.

During her time with the Raiders, Trask was the highest-ranking female executive in the NFL.

In You Negotiate Like a Girl: Reflections on a Career in the National Football League (Triumph Books, September 2016), Amy Trask opens up about her experience as the highest ranking female executive in the league and working in the front office. With the help of sportswriter Mike Freeman, Trask delves into her past and shares how she achieved success.

  • Anecdotes from Amy’s days working with Al Davis and being on the road with the Raiders
