Bill Bolen out at Dream Front Office?

The new front office staff directory has been posted at the Atlanta Dream website. It seems that Bill Bolen, the former President and Chief Operating Officer of the Dream, is no longer at the DFO. He has become a director at Homrich and Berg, Inc. and remains the Chief Financial Officer at the Terwilliger Family Office. His time as President and COO of the Dream is listed as past employment.

Tonya Alleyne remains as Vice President of Media Relations. On the coaching side, Marynell Meadors, Fred Williams, Carol Ross and Sue Panek are still listed. But in terms of a president or vice-president - the positions formerly held by Bolen and Donehew - those positions aren't even listed on the new org chart.

Someone told me that Kathy Betty intends to be a hands-on owner. If so, I wish her the best of luck - my impression is that it's a steep learning curve.

This is true - he never planned on staying from what I hear, so Betty knew going in she had to hire a new person. She probably would have wanted "her own person" eventually anyway, even though DFO was known in the league as one of the strongest management teams and Bolen as one of the strongest team presidents. I do know he was the one who pushed to make LiveAccess happen for the league for example. Tough loss, but I am sure Betty can find another good leader in this job market.

Notice also that the VP of Ticket Sales and the VP of Marketing are also no longer with the company.

I wonder who left on their own and who just were not "re hired" by Kathy Betty. SMH

Glad that Schirmer is still there though.
