Longtime Spurs Owners Divorcing, Raising Questions About Future
Spurs Sports & Entertainment Chair & CEO Julianna Hawn Holt has "filed for divorce" from her husband Peter Holt, the club's former owner, and it "likely will have implications for the future of a franchise long viewed as a model of stability," according to a front-page piece by Orsborn & Danner of the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS. Julianna "filed for divorce Dec. 22." She said in a statement, "The franchise is safe. We are dedicated and committed to continued success." Orsborn & Danner note the couple are "believed to own" about 40% of the team. Julianna has "shied away from the media since taking over from her husband" in March '16, allowing Spurs President of Business Operations Rick Pych to "oversee the day-to-day operations of the team" (SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS, 2/13).
