Nets restructure front office in advance of move
Published February 6, 2006
The New Jersey Nets have restructured their front office, creating a new chief marketing officer position for the franchise ahead of its planned move to Brooklyn in 2008.
Tom Glick has been hired for the CMO post. In addition, former Nets senior vice president of sales and marketing Leo Ehrline has been named senior vice president/director with Nets Sports and Entertainment.
Prior to joining the Nets, Glick, 37, spent the past two years as a vice president for the NBA’s marketing and team business development services department. He becomes the third league executive from that department who has recently entered the team management ranks. Last year, Paul Mott was hired as president of the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets and Lou DePaoli was hired as chief marketing officer of the Atlanta Hawks.
Nets Sports and Entertainment is the New Jersey club’s ownership group. As CMO, Glick will report directly to Nets Sports and Entertainment President Brett Yormark.
“Tom’s progressive business practices and his NBA experience will help us continue our growth in ticket sales and sponsorships,” Yormark said in a statement.
