Grizzlies shake up front office

Days after announcing coaching changes, BCHL team adjusts business, marketing roles

The Victoria Grizzlies have reorganized their front office operations in an effort to focus the B.C. Hockey League team’s efforts for the rest of the 2014-15 season.

Sonya Saujani, a member of the team’s community ownership group, has been named vice-president of business operations and will work closely with team president John Wilson and Lee Richardson, also both part of the Grizzlies ownership team.

Jim Swanson of the Victoria HarbourCats baseball club has also been brought in to serve in a marketing advisory position, while Don Robinson has been named vice-president of hockey operations.

Newly renamed head coach Craig Didmon will be behind the bench for Friday’s (Dec. 5) game in Duncan and Saturday at The Q Centre against Merritt (7 p.m. start).
