Welcome Aboard: Trail Blazers Announce AEG's Chris McGowan As President & CEO
Published October 30, 2012
LEAVING TOWN: In Portland, Andy Giegerich noted the Blazers "passed over" team Exec VP & COO Sarah Mensah, who had "been expected to be a top candidate for the post." The McGowan announcement came "just after Mike Fennell, the team's longtime counsel, revealed he was leaving the Blazers" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 10/29). Giegerich in a separate piece noted Fennell "had been with the team for the past 20 years." He will now "serve as a legal consultant for the team as it looks for a replacement." In-house counsel Ben Lauritsen "will fill Fennell’s role as acting general counsel." Fennell has "worked on such matters as player contract negotiations during his tenure" and also has "served as general counsel for other" Allen-owned Portland affiliates (BIZJOURNALS.com, 10/29).
