Wolves’ VP Of Operations Wins McKenzie Award
Congratulations are in order for the Chicago Wolves Vice President of Operations Courtney Mahoney as she was presented with the AHL’s 2008-09 Ken McKenzie Award. This award is given annually to a team executive who has been deemed to have most successfully promoted his/her organization.
Mahoney… a 34-year old native of Western Springs, Illinois… has for 13 seasons been in charge of community relations and game operation for the Thrashers’ AHL affiliate. Thanks to her efforts, the team has raised over $4 million for team charities during her tenure…more than $200,000 during last season alone. Two of the charities that have benefited from these donations are the Adopt a Dog and Read to Succeed programs.
Mahoney’s other duties include overseeing operations of all Wolves’ home games, which involves the playing of in-house music and overseeing the pre-game pyrotechnics show.
Of her service, Wolves Chairman of the Board Don Levin remarked, “Since being an intern during the birth of the Wolves, Courtney has been a nurturing leader of the organization…she has created the public persona of the team and without her we would have been much less than we are. I appreciate Courtney every day.”
The McKenzie Award is named after and honors Ken McKenzie, the founder and publisher of The Hockey News, and was first presented in 1978. McKenzie was honored in 1997 by the Hockey Hall of Fame as the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award winner.
