In a move that probably won't shock, thrill, upset, or give any Suns fans an excuse to comment, the Phoenix Suns hired former Dial Corp big wig, Brad Casper to take the vacant spot of recently departed Rick Welts. Said fan favorite and Suns owner Robert Sarver:
"Brad brings a level of experience we're fortunate to have, given an organization our size. He's run companies 10 times our size. His breadth of experience in brand management, customer satisfaction and marketing is a big-time addition. He also has a lot of experience in international marketing, the fastest growing part of the NBA. His depth in branding and marketing is something we never had before."
Casper has no experience in the NBA, while Rick Welts served for over 40 years with various franchises. Nevertheless, in 2005, Casper witnessed his "second NBA game in two decades and was hooked."
Rejoice, Suns Fans, Rejoice!!!
