Iron Peak Management Team

Sandra Weingart, GM
Sandra Weingart, General Manager

Weingart is the General Manager of Iron Peak Sports and Events in Hillsborough, New Jersey. She is an experienced, service-oriented leader with a rich background in nonprofit systems, sports & fitness organizations, and start-up and renovation projects. Her stronger skill sets speak to facility operations, program creation and management, youth development, grant writing, community engagement, branding, and a strong sales acumen. She is a passionate and driven professional with roots in journalism, education, coaching, and social service. Her career is marked by a reputation of successfully building or re-designing organizations, start-ups, or individual departments – in large part due to a unique focus on setting positive culture, policy creation, attention to detail, team building, work ethic, and a passion for innovation and selling.

Weingart grew up partially in the New Brunswick, NJ area and partially in upstate New York near Ithaca. In her youth, she excelled in a variety of sports – basketball, soccer, baseball, track & field, and was a Junior Olympic qualifying swimmer. She played NCAA D1 soccer in college in Tennessee and a year of semi-pro in Portland, Oregon.

Fred has spent the bulk of his professional career in the sports and events industry, starting 20 years ago with the New Jersey Devils. After a brief detour working for Yahoo!, Fred realized that he needed to return to something he was passionate about.

Fred currently resides in Lawrenceville with his three kids, and his very patient and understanding wife.
