Jason Wexler Rumors
Jason Wexler has been promoted to president of business operations by Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera. Wexler, who joined the team as chief operating officer in 2013, will be responsible for all aspects of the business including, ticket sales and service, arena operations, corporate partnerships, marketing communications and broadcast, community investment and general operations. “Robert not only wants to win but has demonstrated a deep commitment to building a sustainable, world-class organization,” Wexler said. “We are a city built on hard work and an authentic and growing sense of community. Today I am presented with the opportunity to continue that work and help shape and build on the unique and special bond between this city and its team.”
Jason Wexler, the Grizzlies/FedExForum chief operating officer, told the committee his group uses the proceeds as incentives to lure top entertainment acts to the arena and that if it’s repealed, the state, Memphis and Shelby County will suffer because it would sully their reputation as “reliable economic development partners.” He said the owners counted on the incentive when they bought the team last year.
