Trail Blazers' business VP J.E. Isaac resigns
He represented team in local property development efforts
J.E. Isaac, the public face of the Portland Trail Blazers property development efforts, is resigning his position as senior vice president of business affairs for the team at the end of July.
Now, however, it is time for me to begin a new chapter and I am ready to move on," Isaac said in a prepared statement.
Trail Blazers President Larry Miller said Isaac will continue to work with the team in his new role as a consultant.
Isaac began his career at the Trail Blazers as the director of game operations and retail. He was promoted to vice president of business operations, and then advanced to the senior executive team where he managed government relations, real estate and business development, and Rose Quarter operations. In those capacities, Isaac represented the organization through his service on numerous civic and community boards and commissions. He has contributed countless hours of leadership and advocacy to some of Portland's most innovative projects including the Portland Streetcar and the creation of the Lloyd Eco-District partnership.
According to the statement, the team will reorganize around Isaac's departure, assigning his responsibilities to other executives who will consult with Isaac as needed.
Isaac began working for the team in 1989. Prior to joining the Trail Blazers, Isaac was a practicing attorney and personal manager in the music business.
Mr. Isaac always seemed to have a friendly demeanor about him, but something is wrong in this announcement. He is not retiring, he is resigning to start a new chapter in his life, but yet he is staying on as consultant?
I wonder if there is more to the story and I have to say, was he "ousted' from his position, then he goes where all people who are ousted in sports go, to the "famous" consultant spot.
