A'S VP DOLICH MOVES IN THE BAY TO WARRIORS PRESIDENT
Published December 9, 1994
The Warriors named A's Exec VP Andy Dolich as their President and COO yesterday. Dolich, 47 had been with the A's for 14 years, and oversaw the "Billyball" advertising campaign in the early '80's during Billy Martin's tenure as A's manager. Dolich has been in the sports business for over 23 years -- working for the 76ers and Capitals before joining the A's. Dolich, who managed the A's entire marketing program, will begin with the Warriors on January 4, and report directly to team owner Christopher Cohan. A's President/GM Sandy Alderson said of Dolich: "Andy has sports marketing in his blood. Over the years he has been a key architect of the team's off-the-field personality and its strong relationship with our fans and the community." The A's promoted Alan Leford, 32, to become VP of Business Operations and take over Dolich's responsibilities (Athletics).
