The Lewiston MAINEiacs announced today that Paul Spellman has joined the team in a minority ownership capacity, while Steven Finn has been named assistant coach
Spellman has been a local fixture in the business community during the past twenty five years serving most recently as Chief Operating Officer of Federal Distributors, Inc. Spellman is the immediate past president of the Board of the Pine Tree Council, Boy Scouts of America, serves on the board of St. Mary's General Hospital, and has served as Region Chair of the National Beer Wholesalers Association, representing all beer wholesaler's in New England, New York and Pennsylvania.
In his new role as partner, Spellman will spend a considerable amount of time working closely with the soon to be announced new team president on community relations, group sales and special projects. Spellman feels strongly that junior hockey in the Twin Cities carries a future of promise.
"I am very confident that the plans Mark (Just) and Roger (Shannon) have in place, as well as the fact the entire organization is totally committed, and in full agreement, that the blueprint is in place for this team to be here for a very long time," said Spellman. "The fans will like what they are going to see."
In making the announcement, MAINEiacs majority owner Mark Just is excited to have Spellman on board: "It has been a goal of mine for the eight years to find a local person to invest in our team who has business acumen, passion for the organization, commitment to its success, a strong work ethic and the integrity necessary to elevate the perception of our team both in Lewiston-Auburn and around the league. I am delighted to welcome Paul Spellman aboard as a minority shareholder of the MAINEiacs and look forward to working with him for many years in Lewiston."
