People on the move: ASM Global, CF Montreal and more

ASM Global has appointed Carl A. Thomas as senior vice-president of sales and platform development, while Meg Little has joined the company as vice-president of marketing solutions.

Thomas (pictured left) and Little (pictured right) will both report to ASM Global’s chief commercial officer Jason Oberlander. Thomas joins the company having previously worked at Universal Studios, Tickets.com, Hookit and CAT Sports, the latter of which he founded.

Little joins ASM Global from Raycom Sports, where she most recently managed relationships that included bringing to market a new family entertainment touring property leveraging the Hot Wheels’ intellectual property.

Major League Soccer team CF Montreal has named former player Gabriel Gervais as its new president and chief executive.

Gervais previously worked in the Montreal office of professional services company Deloitte and he will take up his new role today (Monday). Gervais played with the then-named Montreal Impact from 2002 to 2008 before pursuing a career outside of football.

Italian newspaper la Repubblica has reported that Vincenzo Novari will leave his role as chief executive of the organising committee for the 2026 winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Novari was appointed to the role in November 2019 but he is set to be replaced at a board meeting later this week. He previously worked as chief executive of telecommunications company 3Italia.

The New York Mets Major League Baseball team has named Katie Pothier as its new executive vice-president and chief legal officer.

Pothier joins the Mets having served as executive vice-president and general counsel of the Texas Rangers since September 2016. She previously worked as executive vice-president and general counsel for the San Diego Padres.

Pothier worked with both the Padres and the Rangers during the construction of their new ballparks (Petco Park and Globe Life Field, respectively).

Johan Eliasch, president of the International Ski Federation (FIS), is set for a new four-year term after emerging as the only candidate for the governing body’s next election.

Eliasch was appointed to the role last June and replaced Gian-Franco Kasper, who passed away the following month. Eliasch is set to be re-elected during the FIS general assembly on May 26 in Milan.
