AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (CelebrityAccess) — Palace Sports & Entertainment has announced that veteran sports agent Arn Tellem will join the organization as a Vice Chairman. Mr. Tellem will join the PS&E team on August 3 after transitioning his current responsibilities as Vice Chairman of Wasserman Media Group.
Tellem will report to PS&E owner Tom Gores and will have oversight of business strategy, public affairs, planning and development as well as community outreach.
“Arn is one of the most accomplished and respected sports executives in the world,” Mr. Gores said. “He has great passion, integrity and honesty, and he shares my belief that sports can be a catalyst for change in the community. He is an outstanding addition to our leadership team who will help us make a real difference in Detroit.”
“The decision to change careers was in one sense a difficult one, because I am leaving a terrific job with great clients and an outstanding leader in Casey Wasserman, who I believe runs the finest sports marketing and talent company in the business,” Mr. Tellem said.
A graduate of University of Michigan Law School, Tellem has repped hundreds of professional athletes over the course of his career. He joins PS&E following nine years at Wasserman Media Group, where he served as Vice Chairman and oversaw the Team Sports Division. In 1989, he founded Los Angeles-based Tellem & Associates which was acquired in 1999 by SFX Entertainment, where he served as Chief Executive Officer of SFX Sports until joining Wasserman. – Staff Writers
