IMG College names Crispino chief operating officer

IMG College has formalized several high-ranking personnel moves, including the promotion of Tony Crispino to chief operating officer.

Crispino, formerly IMG’s senior vice president for operations and finance in the Cleveland office, is moving into IMG College’s headquarters in Winston-Salem, N.C., to assist President Ben Sutton with the day-to-day operations, while also working on business development, financial management and strategic growth.

Crispino will oversee several key senior staff positions, including Mark Dyer as senior vice president/chief innovation officer; Kelli Hilliard as senior vice president/chief people officer; and Lou Doherty as  senior vice president/general and managing counsel. A chief financial officer has not yet been hired.

Hilliard, a 15-year veteran of ISP Sports, moved over to IMG College when the company bought ISP last year.

Dyer will run IMG College’s business ventures group, which includes events and hospitality, stadium and arena, seating solutions and ticket solutions.

Doherty will oversee IMG College’s legal team.
