FORMER MSG PRESIDENT TO FORM SPORTS/ENTERTAINMENT VENTURE
Published December 15, 1995
Bob Gutkowski, former President of MSG, will reportedly form a new company called The Marquee Group that will specialize in sports and entertainment event management. A source told this morning's N.Y. POST, "They're aiming to do what Mike Ovitz did with CAA. That is, to provide a one-stop shop for everything from arranging, promoting and staging events to selling it to sponsors and the networks." Gutkowski will reportedly be joined by "several companies already active in marketing, agenting and producing." The venture is expected to be announced Wednesday at Manhattan's Reebok Sports Club (Neal Travis, N.Y. POST, 12/15).
