The Washington Stealth announced Cory Howerton as the team’s new Vice President of Sales on Friday.
Howerton has over 15 years of experience as a sports executive and is from the state of Washington.
“We liked Cory enough to create a high-level position in the organization for him,” Stealth president David Takata said. “Cory’s recent experience in growing the fan base for niche pro sports teams makes him a valuable commodity, and we were fortunate to be able to recruit him back to the Puget Sound.”
