Avs Promote Josh Kroenke To President; Joe Sakic Named Exec VP
The Avalanche on Friday promoted team Governor Josh Kroenke to President, taking over for Pierre Lacroix. Kroenke, also Nuggets President, becomes the "only executive in pro sports to have the title of president for two teams." The Avs also promoted Exec Advisor Joe Sakic to Exec VP/Hockey Operations, giving him "final say on all player personnel decisions." Additionally, Greg Sherman "no longer will be listed as an executive vice president but retains the title of general manager, albeit with diminished authority" (DENVER POST, 5/11).
