IMG Combining Media & Events Units Under One Division
IMG will combine its media and events business under one umbrella -- to be called IMG Media & Events -- and promoted Adam Kelly and Sam Zussman to co-Presidents to run it. In a prepared statement, Endeavor President Mark Shapiro said Kelly and Zussman will foster “greater collaboration among these two naturally complementary business.” Current IMG Media co-President Ioris Francini is getting promoted to Chair of the media group. Kelly, who started at IMG in '01, handles rights, acquisitions and content distribution. Zussman started in '06 and had been President of IMG’s events division.
