Northwest Entertainment Group recently hired JOHN CHAPPLE who took over as President and COO. NEG owns the Canucks, Grizzlies, and the GM Place. Chapple is a close associate of JOHN MCCAW, Jr., the Seattle billonaire who purchased majority control of NEG three months ago. NEG Chair ARTHUR GRIFFITHS confirmed the appointment yesterday and said the group is looking to change their name.
