NORTH ANDOVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IPC Sports Corp., maker of The Original Fan Band, announces the addition of Jack Smith to its Board of Directors.
Holly Ruma, Chairperson and CEO of IPC Sports stated, “We are pleased to welcome Jack Smith, the founder of Sports Authority, to our Board of Directors. With his wealth of experience in the specialty sports merchandise segment, Jack will be an invaluable addition to our team. His insight and knowledge will be a tremendous advantage to our organization as we prepare to launch our first product, the Fan Band, globally.”
The Fan Band is a patented, embroidered wrist band bearing an exact likeness of a player’s game jersey. “As a retailer with over fifty years of experience, the Fan Band is the first sports product for retail that is new and exciting and should produce additional sales for the retail industry,” said Mr. Smith.
