The Turnaround League: CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon Joins Lavin
Cohon was recently profiled in The Financial Post magazine, in a cover story touting the league’s newfound successes (and its remaining challenges). Cohon is a leader first and foremost, and he provides his audiences with key takeaways on how to lead any organization into uncertain waters. He cut his teeth at the higher reaches of the pro sports world, at both Major League Baseball, where he was Director of Corporate and Game Development, and at the National Basketball Association, where he was Director and Group Manager of International Marketing, Managing Director of NBA Europe, and Vice-President of Business Development. When the CFL gave him the opportunity to head up his own league, Cohon was more than ready to apply everything he’d learned—and then some—to his new role as Commissioner.
