Utah Blaze Announce Ownership Change

Utah Blaze owner Kristin Murdock has sold her majority share of the franchise to Salt Lake City business woman Kim Brown, the team announced today. A three-year member of the ownership group, Murdock was instrumental in resurrecting the Blaze organization in 2010.
"It is with mixed emotions that I have sold my majority ownership in the team," Murdock stated. "I joined this franchise just over three years ago and I'm extremely proud of what we've accomplished in that time.
"We went from being one of the worst teams in the league in 2010 to being one of the premier teams in the AFL, one play away from the ArenaBowl Championship game in 2012. I will be a fan for life and will continue to cheer for the Utah Blaze. With the League's best coaches, players, and fans, I am looking forward to a great 2013 season!"
Kim Brown joins Logan Hunter and Abundant Brands as majority owners of the Utah Blaze. Brown brings over 25 years of experience in marketing and media to the franchise. Over the past 10 years, the Kim Brown & Associates marketing firm has seen rapid expansion while becoming one of Salt Lake City's most prominent agencies.
"We're extremely excited to welcome Kim Brown to the Utah Blaze," said Head Coach Ron James. "She brings an abundance of energy and enthusiasm to our franchise. Kim's intelligence as a businesswoman instills confidence that her addition will really take our organization to the next level."
Brown has an extensive background in sales, strategic planning, creative production and media placement. She has worked with a variety of companies, from start-ups to national corporations, managing their marketing and advertising budgets.
Kim Brown & Associates is a full service agency covering all areas of the marketing realm. This includes brand identity and development, collateral, print (large and small scale format), script writing, television production, radio production, media buying (including television, radio, print and outdoor), public relations, website development and optimization, event planning, promotions and grassroots community outreach.
