Chicago 2016 Update: Chicago 2016 Committee marketers shuffled

Lew Lazare, the Chicago Sun-Times media columnist reported the following earlier today:

Gordon Kane

Gordon Kane (pictured), who was one of the top executives in the Chicago 2016 marketing unit, left to work on the upcoming world boxing competitionships set for Chicago. Kane evidently will continue to advise the city’s Olympic committee as a consultant.

Mark Mitten, who was responsible for developing the city’s new Olympic star logo, unveiled last week, and the various videos used to impress United States Olympic Committee members, is now in charge of all the 2016 committee’s marketing initiatives.
