WTA Board, Korn Ferry Meeting Today To Discuss New Chief Exec
Published July 9, 2009
The Sony Ericsson WTA Tour BOD is meeting in N.Y. today with search firm Korn Ferry to perhaps select the next leader of the tour, sources said. The board is looking at four candidates: WTA President Stacey Allaster, COO & General Counsel David Shoemaker and two outsider candidates, sources said. Allaster is the heavy favorite for the job, which became vacant June 30 when Larry Scott left the tour to become Commissioner of the Pac-10 Conference. It could not be determined who the two outsiders are. One source said the WTA board feels the search has gone on long enough -- Scott announced his departure in February -- and that the group should have a chief executive in place when the U.S. summer hardcourt season begins next week. It is not certain, however, a choice will be made.
