Congratulations to Mets BM Omar Minaya, who is a favorite to win Fortune Magazine’s coveted “Brand Manager of the Year: Sports Industry”.
Some fitting quotes after game 162 from Minaya:
“… the bottom line is we have to continue to put a winning product on the field … ”
“… I believe we got four million fans …”
“… our ownership is totally committed — you saw the investment we made in Johan Santana — our ownership is committed to putting a winning product on the field”
“… our brand is good, our ratings are good, and we are going go out and to continue to give our fans the best product we can, every day.”
Bottom Line … Product …. Brand … Investment … Ratings … THIS is the language of an executive truly committed to profitability!
