Three senior officials at Monumental Sports & Entertainment – the Ted Leonsis-led group that owns the Wizards and Capitals — departed the organization in recent days as part of a significant leadership restructuring that left some of their colleagues rattled, reports The Washington Post.
The Post’s piece, in part, added:
“The departed executives include Kurt Kehl (senior vice president and chief communications officer); Joe Dupriest (senior vice president and chief marketing officer) and Kim Frank (vice president of marketing).
“Kehl, the chief spokesman for Monumental Sports since its formation, has been with the Capitals organization since 2002, working closely with Leonsis, with Monumental’s broadcasters and broadcast partners, and with local media members. Dupriest has been with the organization for nine years; he helped the Caps launch their “Rock the Red” campaign in 2008, a marketing push that came to define the Alex Ovechkin era. And Frank has been with the organization since 2007, helping the Caps launch both their women’s group (Scarlet Caps) and the popular Caps Convention.”
