    Old article on board turn over

    Once the sale closes, the MLSE board of directors will undergo a major change. It will shrink from seven directors to six, as the incoming company president is not expected to get a seat. Leaving the board will be Robert Bertram, Jane Rowe, Glen Silvestri and Ashvin Malkani, who represented the former owner, the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan Board. Richard Peddie stepped down from the board when he retired as MLSE president earlier this year.

    The only holdovers on the new board will be MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum, who owns the other 25 per cent of the company, and his long-time associate Dale Lastman. The other four directors’ seats will be split equally between Rogers and BCE. A source said Rogers chief executive officer Nadir Mohamed and BCE CEO George Cope will be on the board but it isn’t known who the other BCE and Rogers representatives will be.

    It also is not known if the new owners have settled on a replacement for Peddie as MLSE president. The leading internal candidate is MLSE’s chief operating officer, Tom Anselmi, who appears to have the support of Tanenbaum and Lastman. But both Rogers and Bell have kept their feelings quiet. The hiring of a new president will require the unanimous approval of the MLSE board.

    There will be an interesting twist in how power is shared on the new board of directors. Bell and Rogers agreed that their four votes on the six-person board will always vote as one, which will prevent any deadlocks. It would also prevent Tanenbaum from aligning himself with one company against another if they disagree on an issue. Apparently, Bell and Rogers will hash it out in private how they will vote before any vote is taken.

    Bell and Rogers are also expected to form a new company, which will hold their MLSE stake.

    Thank God Glen is leaving. He was one of those meddling execs that wanted to protect his investment rather than winning.

    Bryan is on thin ice with this new ownership group. Ownership going over his head and speaking to Dwane is not a good sign for BCo.

    Results shouldn't come from injuries. Which is what it took to find success the year BC signed Hedo to play point forward. Calderon held onto the ball too long, which is where Hedo's reference to ball came from. The team didn't utilize him properly as a point forward until Jose went down to injury. Most forget with all their hate on the signing that team was sitting 5th in division before Bosh's injury.
    how can anybody forget when you are constantly bringing it up? what you never seem to mention is how freaking soft the schedule was to that point in the season and how unimpressive our +/- was.

    Isn't Glen the exec that wanted BC fired?.

    To bad this team couldn't have an individual owner instead of group investment. Sounds like to many conflicting opinions.

    I still hold hope that this co-ownership group is interested in winning content for their sports channels. At least I still hold hope they didn't just buy MLSE for hockey. It must be better than a bunch of school teachers.

    Glen was the one who (besides wanting BC fired) had many ideas on how to run our team. I've never really been a fan of Bryan Colangelo but to me, it has always been clear that executives who know nothing about sports interfering more than they should.

    Their number one goal was always ticket and merchandise $$$. It was never about winning. Perhaps Bosh would have been traded a lot earlier had our owners cared more about putting out a winning product.

    It wasn't teachers, it was an investment group that looked out for their clients ( teacher pensions).

    Here's hoping the new owners are sports fans.
