WTA names Larry Scott CEO

March 29, 2003 at 2:39 PM   |   Comments

MIAMI, March 29 (UPI) -- Larry Scott, who had spent the last 11 years on the ATP Tour, Saturday was introduced as the new chairman of the WTA Tour.

The 38-year-old Scott had been the ATP's Chief operating officer and president of ATP Properties - the marketing and sales arm for the organization's commercial rights. Among his accomplishments in that role were his efforts with the Tennis Masters Cup and the renewal of a 10-year sponsorship pact with Mercedes-Benz.

Scott, who received a 5-year contract, replaces Kevin Wulff, who leaves the WTA Tour after nearly 1 1/2 years as CEO to pursue a career with Adidas. Scott will oversee the WTA Tour from his London-based office until he relocates with his family to the WTA Tour's headquarters in St. Petersburg, Fla., in mid-April.
