Published March 14, 1995
The CBA Board of Directors announced that Brian Hakan and Associates has been hired to manage and organize the league's first-ever league-wide licensing and merchandising program. The K.C.-based Hakan & Assoc. oversees a similar program for the IHL and ABC's "Monday Night Football" and "Wide World of Sports." CBA Commissioner Tom Valdiserri: "Sales of professional sports merchandise has exploded over the last five-to-10 years, it is time that the CBA claim its share of the business. ... [In two year] we hope to have the market saturated with our products." Valdiserri said the league will market new logos, nicknames and colors (CBA).
