The Golden Knights are conducting a search for a new chief marketing officer after Nehme Abouzeid left that position on June 30, the team confirmed Monday.
His departure came less than two weeks after the NHL Expansion Draft and Entry Draft in which the Knights filled out their initial player roster.
“Nehme left the Golden Knights having helped us reach many key milestones. We wish him the utmost success in his future endeavors,” team president Kerry Bubolz said in a statement.
Abouzeid had posted on Facebook: “Pro hockey effectively launched in Vegas. City excited. Team drafted. Brand rolled out. Flagship store opened. Fan base engaged and growing. Looking forward to the next journey helping other companies and brands do the same. Look for my own firm launching soon in Vegas …”
Abouzeid was hired by the Knights in November from Wynn Las Vegas, where he had spent the previous three years handling the marketing and international branding efforts.
