Power Players: Derek Eiler, Chris Prindiville
Executive Vice President
Senior Vice President
When Fanatics decided to expand its college business two years ago, it turned to Eiler and Prindiville, a pair of industry veterans who know the licensing and retail game as well as anyone. They came from CAA Sports’ Fermata Partners, a licensing agency they started after their lengthy runs at Collegiate Licensing Company. Most recently, they have driven deals at Oregon and Florida, where Fanatics has moved in as the primary apparel partner.
