Was looking on the webpage to see if a new President/COO or Head Coach has been named and noticed Jeff Longo is missing on the Front Office page. Is he still with the organization ?

He is missing. Good catch.  The following is still in the archives for the website so I thought I'd post it here before all traces were erased.

Jeff Longo

President/Owner

Biography:

Jeff Longo joins the Marksmen as Owner/President, for the 2017-18 season. Longo brings a rich hockey background to the Marksmen, having spent over twenty years in professional hockey in upper management positions.

After beginning his career as a Public Relations intern for the New York Rangers (NHL), the native of Hazlet, New Jersey spent six seasons with the San Diego Gulls (WCHL) – the last three as team President.  While there, the team led the league in attendance all six seasons and won the league championship three times.

In 2003, Longo took a position as the President of the Charlotte Checkers (ECHL) and helped orchestrate the team’s move into a new facility in uptown Charlotte (the NBA Charlotte Bobcats’ Time Warner Cable Arena).  Team attendance and revenue increased for six straight seasons from 2003-2008.

Longo then served as the Vice President of Marketing and Community Initiatives for the New Jersey Devils (NHL), His marketing team helped frame moments like Martin Brodeur’s record for most wins all-time and most shutouts for a goaltender and Patrick Elias’ franchise record for points.

Longo returned to Charlotte in 2010 and served as a consultant to senior management for the Charlotte Checkers (AHL), assisting with corporate marketing initiatives, staffing and negotiations of the team’s lease(s) with the arena.

Longo is currently an associate professor and program director for the Sports, Events and Entertainment department at Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte.  He is pursuing his doctorate at the United States Sports Academy.  Jeff and his wife Alisa reside in Charlotte with their two daughters- Riley and Emmery.

Patrick Stack is gone from the Marksmen front office also ... like Longo , a faculty member at Johnson and Wales University ....anyone have a clue as to what is happening with the organization ? Now is the time for a coach to recruit and a president to get going with the corporate sponsors and no one is in place to handle the work .........

Right now Norris is a one man band.  Hopefully he will have his new President and Head coach/GM in place soon.  It will be interesting to see who Norris chooses for the protected list in a couple of weeks.  I think the serious recruiting starts after the protected lists are made known.

This thread has been linked to the SPHL Forums Twitter page, to see if it can draw some attention from a wider audience with organizational intel.  :hmm:
