Wasserman Media Group (WMG) named former IMG President of Olympic Sales & Marketing ROBERT PRAZMARK Exec VP/Marketing, “where he hopes to represent international sports properties in sponsorship and marketing sales, among other things,” according to Liz Mullen of SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL. Prazmark, who will report to WMG Marketing President JEFF KNAPPLE, represented the USOC from ’99-’05 at IMG. Knapple: “It would be logical to assume we would build out an Olympic business and Rob would be a big part of it” (SBJ, 7/17 issue).
