Changes happening in Ted Leonsis's new sports empire
In case you missed it, business writer Thomas Heath reported yesterday that some monumental (ugh) changes are afoot in Capitals owner Ted Leonsis's Monumental Sports and Entertainment, which now includes the Wizards and Verizon Center.
Dick Patrick will serve as chief operating officer of Monumental, reporting to Leonsis, as well as keeping his job as president of the Capitals. Patrick will also run most of the revenue-generating groups at Monumental, overseeing the combined ticket, sponsorship and premium seating sales organizations.
On the media side, Capitals spokesman Kurt Kehl will become Monumental's vice president of corporate communications.
Leonsis yesterday posted a "point of clarification" on his personal blog:
At the Washington Capitals, George McPhee continues to report to Dick Patrick. George is our GM and Dick is President of the Capitals. That reporting relationship hasn't changed at all. And at the Washington Wizards, Ernie Grunfeld has and continues to report directly to me. He runs basketball operations and is totally responsible for our team, its players, coaches, scouts, and related activities.
