In January 2009, Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal named Silverman to its 2009 "Forty Under 40" list honoring accomplished and promising sports executives under age 40.
Prior to his current position, Silverman worked at Goldman Sachs in its Merchant Banking Division, alongside Stuart Sternberg. He assisted in putting together Sternberg's bid to purchase controlling interest in the Rays. Silverman was part of the transition that not only changed the name of the franchise from the Devil Rays to the Rays but also contributed to the team's move from last place to the World Series in 2008.
He currently resides in Tampa, Florida. He is the team representative at the Tampa Bay Partnership, and is a board member of both the Pinellas Education Foundation and the Hillsborough Education Foundation.
