Centerplate Publicly Censures, Disciplines CEO Hague After Dog-Kicking Incident Sparks Outcry
Published August 28, 2014
BOYCOTTS TO COME? In Portland, Allan Brettman noted the Centerplate serves as the Timbers' concessionaire, and some Timbers fans "were suggesting a concessions boycott until Hague is replaced." The team in a statement said, "We share the outrage of many of our supporters regarding the recent video that surfaced of Centerplate CEO Des Hague's mistreatment of a dog in an elevator. Please understand that we have a quality local team of more than 100 Centerplate employees whose employment the Timbers have direct recourse over should any issue arise" (OREGONLIVE.com, 8/27).
