Hello, Welcome to the Aspire Group


One of the newest members of the National Basketball Association. NBA legend and North Carolina native, Michael Jordan, is a majority Owner and Managing Member of Basketball Operations for the team.

Challenge:

The President/Chief Operating Officer of the Charlotte Bobcats had lost faith in the organizations ability to deliver timely, focused, loyal counsel, especially in finance and arena operations.

Solution:

Aspire Group Principal, Bill Duffy, was retained to evaluate all facets of operations while acting as CFO/COO, covering staff assessment, ticket pricing, suite renewals, partnerships, arena operations and business operations.

Results:

The organization is now functioning more effectively as a team in meeting the daily challenges of operating an NBA Franchise and a world class arena. Using restructuring, coaching, closer monitoring and accountability, plus adding support where necessary, produced a more revenue and service focused organization. Additionally, the massive financial projections and documentary support needed to attract and service new investors was provided.
