Competitor Appoints Dickey President

Published January 19, 2010

SAN DIEGO, CA (BRAIN)—Current Competitor Group (CGI) chief operating officer Scott Dickey has been appointed to the position of president. He assumes the title from president and chief executive Peter Englehart, who remains CEO.

“I am proud of the many accomplishments the Competitor Group has achieved since its inception two years ago this month and equally enthusiastic to turn over the president post to Scott,” Englehart said. “With vast experience in sports marketing, operations and business development, Scott has been instrumental in integrating the media properties and expanding our events division including leading an internal reorganization within the company to promote efficient operations and profitable growth. This new title not only affirms my confidence in his leadership for the future, but also reflects what he has been accomplishing for the company every day.”

Dickey joined the board of CGI as a director upon the company’s inception and then full time in May 2008 as chief operating officer. Dickey is also an operating partner of Falconhead Capital, CGI’s parent company.

“Having successfully completed the company’s integration and initial growth, Competitor is at an exciting crossroads in its development,” Dickey said. “I look forward to helping Peter, our management team and our investors realize the potential of what we have collectively created here at CGI. The opportunity to serve as president as we continue to take CGI to the next level is a great honor.”
