Nashville, Tenn. (January 10, 2019) - Nashville Predators Holdings LLC, the group of primarily local executives in finance, healthcare and private business who form the team's ownership group, announced Thursday that Herb Fritch assumed the role of Chairman of the team's Board of Directors effective Jan. 9, 2019. He assumes the role occupied by Tom Cigarran since March 2010.
"Over the past nine years, Tom has helped propel the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena to become both the No. 1 franchise in all of sports as selected by ESPN, Pollstar Arena of the Year for the second time in 2017 and another nomination in 2018," Fritch said. "When I first became a part of the Predators ownership group in 2007, I did so as a civic duty. In the past 11-plus years, our loyal and growing fanbase has taken the Predators to heights I never imagined. I'm proud to be a part of something that has had such an impact on this city and region."
"Our ambition in 2019 and beyond is to continue to build on the momentum that has been created under Tom's leadership, always keeping our One Goal at the forefront: to become the No. 1 Sports and Entertainment venue in the United States with a Stanley Cup Champion Nashville Predators as its centerpiece."
