Stu Grimson Elected President Of The Board Of The Nashville Jr. Predators

-- Grimson fills role that has been vacant since August 2011 --

Nashville, Tenn. – Former Nashville Predators player and current Preds Radio analyst Stu Grimson has been named President of the Board by the Nashville Jr. Predators.

“We are so thrilled to have Stu join our organization as President.” Nashville Jr. Predators Vice President Chris Thiesing said. “Stu brings a wealth of knowledge, hockey experience and leadership to the table. He is a ‘get things done’ type of person and that is exactly what the Jr. Predators need! His charm, wit and personality are second-to-none and I anticipate the program to grow exponentially through his involvement.”

In this new role, Grimson will chair board meetings, monitor and support the Hockey Director, monitor and oversee financial obligations and work with parents and board members on the vision for Jr. Predators growth. Grimson fills the role left vacant by John Latreille, who stepped down in August of 2011 due to health problems.

“Since Stu became a full-time Nashville Predators employee this past summer, it has become overwhelmingly evident that his unique skill set and experience has made him a very dynamic, exciting and valuable resource,” Predators President/Chief Operating Officer Sean Henry said. “As President of the board, Stu will utilize his skills, passion and desire to grow the game and the Jr. Predators in Middle Tennessee and beyond.”

“I am honored and humbled to be elected President of the board of the Nashville Jr. Predators,” Grimson said. “It is a phenomenal organization and I look forward to furthering my involvement and giving back to the youth hockey community of Middle Tennessee.”
