Evans Boston, Sr. Director, Public & Community Relations
Evans Boston joined the Maine Red Claws/Celtics in October 2014, but is very familiar with the team. Evans has been covering the Red Claws since their inception as a member of the media. For the previous 7 years, Boston served as a sports anchor and reporter for WGME in Portland. His departure from WGME coincided with Will McClaran’s acceptance of a job with the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans. The timing was perfect, and Boston was thrilled to join the Red Claws front office. Boston is a Maine native, a graduate of York High School in York. Boston graduated from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. Boston was a key reserve player for the York High School freshman basketball team, and a star bench player on the baseball team as well.
Alicia Milne, Director, Corporate Partnerships
Alicia Milne joined the Maine Celtics as their Director of Corporate Partnerships in June 2023. She brings over a decade of knowledge and experience in partnerships which spans across Maine from her work as the Development Director at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maine. Much of her early childhood was spent traveling with her parents along the east coast of the US with a six-year stretch in Singapore after which her family came back to Saco in 2001 and have been here ever since. Outside of the office, Alicia enjoys time spent with friends and family, experimenting with new recipes, volunteering, and being active whether it's walks with her dog, skiing, or rock climbing. Her fun fact: She moonlights as an auctioneer for non-profit events, something she hopes to continue to support for organizations across the state.

Nick Russo started from the bottom…now he’s here! Nick joined the Red Claws/Celtics organization as an intern in 2017, slowly working his way up the ladder to Inside Sales Representative, and eventually to the position of Account Executive, a position he holds today. Nick is a “Local Boy” – a native of Falmouth, Nick attended Cheverus High School and eventually St. Joseph’s College of Maine in Standish, where he earned a Business and Sports Management degree. An avid New England sports fan, Nick roots for all things Boston, especially the Celtics.
