Sixers hire Adam Aron as new CEO

With the sale of the Sixers still about two weeks away from being official, the new management team led by Joshua Harris has been busy.  According to Bob Cooney of the Daily News, the group has hired Adam M. Aron as the team's chief executive officer.

Aron is a senior partner at Apollo Global Management.  He had previously been CEO at Vail Resorts and Norwegian Cruise Line, as well as senior vice president of marketing at United Airlines and Hyatt Hotels.

Aron group up in Philadelphia (Abington High, class of 1972), and got both his undergraduate (government) and MBA at Harvard University.

Aron reportedly met with Doug Collins, Rod Thorn, and Ed Stefanski at the team's practice facility, the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, which could be due for an upgrade.  Doug Collins had this to say about the practice facility:

"Josh and Adam know that we need upgrades to our practice facility. They know to make money you have to spend money."
