May 9, 2014, SASKATOON, SK (ISN) – The Saskatoon Blades are extremely pleased to announce that Michael Scissons has been promoted to the newly-created position of Vice President of Business Operations.

“Michael has been a tremendous team player for us during the last season as our new leadership group took the reins of this organization,” said Blades president Steve Hogle.  “He has a fantastic skill set and work ethic, both of which are necessary and greatly appreciated.”

Scissons first joined the Saskatoon Blades in 2003-04 when he was hired on as an account executive.  After four seasons in that role, he was promoted to the position of Corporate Development.  That role eventually led to Scissons taking over as the Director of Sales, the position he held  before this latest promotion to Vice President of Business Operations.

In this role, Scissons will continue to guide the Blades business operations, maintaining contact on a daily basis with both corporate partners and season ticket holders. 

The Saskatoon Blades would like to thank Michael for his years of service and congratulate him on his new role within the organization.
