ARIZONA RATTLERS PRESS RELEASE
On September 26th, former Arizona Rattlers Team President Joe Windham left the team upon mutual agreement.
On October 8th, 2014, the Arizona Rattlers announced that Chris Presson, former Arizona Sundogs president/GM, has been named the new team president.
“With Chris’ extensive sales and sports marketing background we are excited to have him oversee the business operations of the franchise…we look forward to working together to elevate the Rattlers to the next level,” said Ron Shurts, owner, Arizona Rattlers.
Chris was the Arizona Sundogs’ Team President for three years and was quoted on the Sundogs site upon leaving the team, “My family and I have had a wonderful experience here. The Fain Family along with Laura Markey and the Lepordo’s have been so supportive and we can’t thank them enough. Our three-in-half years here, have allowed us to learn and grow and have afforded us lifelong relationships. Aside from the Sundogs ownership family, our staff and the facility management have gone above and beyond to help me. I’m thankful to the community at large for embracing my family and I. Though we have called Prescott Valley home for the last three years, we are looking forward to our new opportunity.”
The Arizona Sundogs are apart of the Central Hockey League and are the CHL afilliate of the Arizona Coyotes. The Sundogs suspended operations for the 2014-2015 season, but are still a member of the CHL.
