The BC Lions have made a drastic overhaul of their Business operations and beginning in December drastic changes will come effect.
They are hiring numerous out of town ticket representatives, new business executive for provincial wide branding, and will be hiring a new executive for corporate development.
Was told all of this is to get the new ownership a strong transition team requested by potential new owners.
This ia a great sign for the Lions. They are expected to profit for '17 though perception lower than usual attendance has affected revenues. Not so. Higher ticket prices and sold out suites/clubs have been key to the Lions success and new ownership obviously intends to grow on this.
Question is who is the new owner? Reports publicly state Seattle businessmen have been vying the Lions and Canucks for numerous of year. Also Dennis Skulsky current President of the Lions has been rumored.
We shall wait and see but it looks like the Lions are close to being put up for sale.
