AccessPoint adds former Detroit Lions executive as president and COO

November 10, 2017

Exciting change is happening at AccessPoint.

The big news: We’ve hired Luis Perez as our new president and chief operating officer.

Who is Lou? Lou has had a prolific career serving in finance and business development for professional sports organizations like the Philadelphia Phillies and the Baltimore Ravens; and major sports arenas across the country including Madison Square Gardens.

Most recently, he served as the senior vice president – business development and strategy for the Detroit Lions and as their chief financial officer for more than four years. During that time he helped the city, and the team, rebuild and prosper. Notably, he helped create nearly 450 jobs in Detroit by negotiating an 11-year lease at Ford Field. He helped increase ticket revenue for the Detroit Lions by $7.3 million and suite revenues by $1.2 million.

Lou is more than a CPA. His track record of success has given him a reputation for developing creative entrepreneurial solutions to challenges in unique businesses. He doesn’t just play the game – he reinvents it.

Lou will focus on strategic business growth and innovation for AccessPoint as he has since December 2016 as a strategic advisor and consultant.

Why did we hire Lou?

Whether in the field or the front office, our clients depend on us to be proactive and lead them to business victory. Lou’s experience give us an advantage to do this while meeting the future head on.

What this means for you
