Blazers appoint McGowan as CEO

AP

PORTLAND, Oregon — The Portland Trail Blazers have appointed AEG Sports executive Chris McGowan as the team's new president and chief operating officer.

McGowan helped guide the NHL's Los Angeles Kings and Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Galaxy as chief operating officer of AEG Sports.

"With his demonstrated leadership with the Kings and Galaxy, I am confident he will find ways to improve the Blazers' business performance, which is key to the team's overall success," Blazers owner Paul Allen said in a prepared statement.

McGowan, who joins the Blazers on Nov. 12, succeeds Larry Miller, who was with the Blazers for five years before he returned to a position at Nike in the offseason.

"I admire the strength of the Trail Blazers' brand and the passion of their fan base," McGowan said. "I am eager to join the staff and continue to build an organization of which the city can be proud."
