Performance Sports Group Ltd., developer and manufacturer of high performance sports equipment and apparel under Bauer, Mission, Maverik, Cascade, Inaria, Combat and Easton, shared that Larry Lucchino has resigned from the Board of Directors, effective immediately.
“I want to personally thank Larry for his contributions to the Board of Directors and to Performance Sports Group,” said Bernard McDonell, Chairman of the Board, Performance Sports Group. “Larry’s deep knowledge of the global baseball industry was a valuable asset to the Company and he played a key role in the official launch of our Easton brand in the competitive Japanese market.”
In April, Lucchino was named Chairman of the Jimmy Fund, which supports adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In addition, Lucchino is also Chairman and a member of the ownership group of the Pawtucket Red Sox, the AAA minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. Lucchino, who served as President and CEO of the Boston Red Sox from 2002-2015, was named President/CEO Emeritus of the Boston Red Sox after the 2015 season.
“I am thankful to Performance Sports Group for the opportunity to serve on the Board. However, it is important that I now concentrate my efforts on serving the Jimmy Fund and the Pawtucket Red Sox,” Lucchino said. “Although it was a difficult decision to leave the Board, I have confidence that the Board and management team will drive future success for Performance Sports Group.”
