Subject: RE: Max Siegel named CEO of USA Track & Field
The article has some good points but I don't think we need to give him credit for NASCAR's success:
"Siegel has a strong resume of success in the sport and entertainment industries. As President of Global Operations at Dale Earnhardt Inc., he helped sell sponsorships that promoted NASCAR, a sport that has grown from the fringes of the American sporting landscape into popular consciousness."
Let's not give Siegel credit for the rise of NASCAR. Siegel worked for one team in NASCAR, Dale Earnhardt Inc, for essentially 2 years. Right after Siegel got there Dale Earnhardt Jr went to a different team and the team was then on the decline and had to merge with another one. Yes he sold sponsorships. He didn't sell enough to save the team. I don't blame him for that as he made the best of a tough situation. But its too simplistic to just lump Siegel and NASCAR's success together.
The guy is clearly hungry and willing to put himself out there while others might sit by and wonder if there is a conflict of interest. The sport might need someone who is hungry.
Vin Lananna is hungry. Way back in the day he was coaching at Dartmouth. He agreed to take the job at Cornell. Next thing you knew he was back at Dartmouth with a pay raise. It upset some at Cornell but you can't argue with Vin's track record of success.
