Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced Tuesday that chief operating officer Michael Yormark has been selected as a recipient of this year's Street & Smith's SportsBusiness Journal Forty Under 40 Award.
"I'm honored to be selected for this prestigious award," Yormark said. "This is truly a reflection of the accomplishments of the entire Sunrise Sports & Entertainment family."
The SportsBusiness Journal editorial staff selected Yormark as one of the 40 winners from among hundreds of sports executives nominated and considered for this honor. Receipt of this award puts Yormark in the company of a very distinguished and elite group of individuals considered among the most influential and creative in the business of sports.
A profile of Yormark, written by SBJ hockey writer Andy Bernstein, appeared in the March 20 issue of the SportsBusiness Journal. Yormark will join the entire group of Forty Under 40 winners, which includes his twin brother Brett of the New Jersey Nets, at the annual black-tie awards ceremony and banquet on Wednesday, March 29 at The Pierre Hotel in New York City.
