We will miss Claire and wish her the very best in her future endeavors,” said Jim Isch, Chairman of the Board at ArbiterSports. “I speak for all of us, including Reid Evans, ArbiterSports founder and board member, when I say we are delighted to welcome Jeff as the CEO of ArbiterSports. He brings with him superb experience and key strengths the company needs as we continue our market leadership into the future.”
