Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment (AHBE) wants damage relief against AIG, the Atlanta Hawks former insurance company. AHBE, along with majority shareholder Bruce Levenson sold the Atlanta Hawks just over a year ago to Tony Ressler, and as part of that sale they decided to buyout General Manager Danny Ferry’s contract. The sale went as planned, but as part of compensation in such an event, they had filed a claim with AIG, their insurance company. As far as AHBE’s attorneys were concerned, this claim was one they were completely entitled to. But AIG has said otherwise and will not honor that claim. AHBE and Levenson now want that claim honored, and plan to file for damages including court costs and attorney fees.
According to Time Magazine, Bruce Levenson purchased the majority shares of the Atlanta Hawks back in 2004 and owned the team till 2015. Prior to that, he founded Unified Communications Group (UCG), a company that’s published many newsletters and journals. He had started this company along with Ed Peskowitz in 1977, and began with Oil Express newsletter. Soon, UCG began acquiring other newsletters, and later tech research subsidiary TechTarget spun out from UCG, and also GasBuddy, an app that displays lower gas prices for drivers.
Bruce Levenson (http://brucelevenson.com/) also has been involved with several philanthropies including Hoop Dreams Foundation, and the University of Maryland’s Center for Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership. He also has donated to the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. and helped start the “Bringing the Lessons Home” program to teach young people about the significance of the Holocaust. He once brought the entire Atlanta Hawks team to the museum where his mother-in-law told the players her survival story. Levenson also supports many Jewish organizations such as Seeds of Peace, BBYO and Birthright Israel, and also chaired the Anti-Defamation League’s Concert Against Hate.
