Bruce Levenson is an American businessman that has been able to enjoy great success within the sports entertainment industry. Namely, Levenson was the former owner of the National Basketball Association’s Atlanta Hawks. With only thirty professional basketball teams within the Association, Levenson’s achievement of heading the Hawks is sometimes understated when some review his career history. However, the ownership of a multi-million dollar professional basketball team can sometimes lead one to pursue legal action for what is right, as Forbes billionaire Levenson found out in September of this year.
Under the direction of Levenson, the former ownership entity of the Atlanta Hawks filed a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company in the Superior Court of Fulton County. The group led by Levenson, formerly named the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC – AHBE, charged the insurance company with breach of contract in regards to the dealings of the settlement of claims made by one-time Hawk manager Danny Ferry.
Bruce Levenson is no novice when it comes to business ownership. Before he owned the Atlanta Hawks, he co-founded conglomerate United Communications Group. Since February of 2015, he served as a Director of TechTarget, Inc. Additionally, Levenson successfully guided the “I Have a Dream Foundation” as President of this Washington-based foundation.
