Now that the Professional Bull Rider’s Built Ford Tough Series is on summer break there are some big changes and announcements coming down the pipe that will change the face of the entire program over the course of the next few years. Not only are things happening in the front office but as time will tell there will be some big changes coming that will make the PBR a world wide professional sporting event!
It was announced earlier this week that some shifting of titles and upper management were made to help better promote the PBR and take it to even higher heights and make it a truly world wide professional sporting event. The current CEO, Jim Haworth, was reassigned to the title of Chairman help manage the “strategic global initiatives” that the Professional Bull Riders organization hope to achieve in the very near future. With the new appointment of Haworth the question was now who would take over in his footsteps as the new CEO of the organization.

The PBR had a very hard choice to make as to who would take over the CEO position that was vacated by Jim Haworth who did a fantastic job while he was at the helm of the biggest professional bull riding company in the world. Although the choice was a tough one they did not have to look too far down the line to find someone who would carry on the fantastic job. The current COO Sean Gleason was selected for to fill the new CEO spot within the company once Haworth was reappointed to Chairman. Gleason who was a well known face around all the stops on the tour for the last 15 years as the COO will do a fantastic job taking over the helm and we all look forward to see what he has in store for the organization in the future!
