Saints Revamp Front Office Following Buying of the NBA’s Hornets

Saints owner Tom Benson has restructured his front office with his recent acquisition of the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets according to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Dennis Lauscha has been promoted to the newly created position of Saints president. Lauscha, 43, will take a more extensive role within the Saints organization, after previously serving as an executive vice president and chief financial officer. He is expected to have a similar role with the Hornets.

Saints’ executive vice president and General Manager Mickey Loomis will likely oversee basketball operations, with the Hornets’ general manager reporting to him.

Benson, who previously held the title of Saints owner and president, will serve as owner and chairman of the board. His granddaughter, Rita Benson LeBlanc, who has served as owner and executive vice president of the Saints since 2005, will now serve as vice-chairwoman of the board.

“We’ve got a good team going, we really do,” said Benson, who was surrounded as usual by his core management team of LeBlanc, Lauscha and Loomis as he sat down in his office Friday to discuss the new roles.

Lauscha and Loomis are also members of the Saints’ board of directors.
