INTO THE WILD: PANTHERS HOLDINGS LOSES TOP EXECUTIVE
Published March 11, 1998
RICHARD EVANS, a "high-profile entertainment executive brought in by H. WAYNE HUIZENGA about 18 months ago to run his sports and entertainment division, resigned on Tuesday to pursue private business interests," according to Barry Jackson of the MIAMI HERALD. Evans: "I've enjoyed my relationship with Wayne, but I've been a hired gun for 30 years, and I want to do some of my own things." Jackson writes that as President of Florida Panthers Holdings, Evans guided the company through its acquisition of five hotels, a golf course and a skating rink, as well as the Panthers' IPO. Evans: "Getting the Boca Raton Resort and Country Club was a coup. People who have been in this business would have died for a chance to get the Boca Resort and the Biltmore Hotel in Arizona" (MIAMI HERALD, 3/11).
