Share Article

eMBA Alumni Project invites the business community to Il Fornaio Restaurant in Irvine on June 19, 2013 from 6pm to 9pm for a quarterly executive roundtable dinner event featuring keynote guest speaker Ozzie Silna. eMBA Alumni Project's vision is to establish an organization that brings together accomplished MBA alumni and established successful business executives to share and exchange ideas in a trusted environment

Ozzie and his brother Daniel are credited with cutting the greatest deal in sports history. After creating a successful textile business the brothers decided that they wanted to own a basketball team -- so they purchased the Carolina Cougars, an ABA franchise. They moved the team to St. Louis and renamed them the Spirits of St. Louis in 1974. In 1976, the NBA decided to merge with the ABA but wanted to cut some of the teams, one being the Spirits. The ABA offered a 7 figure deal but the Silnas opted for another deal – 1/7 of the “visual media” rights given to the former ABA teams in perpetuity.

This event is following a successful Executive Roundtable Dinner at Maggiano’s (Costa Mesa) on March 13, 2013 where the focus was on Leadership & Sustained Excellence with Sue Enquist who holds more National Championships (11) than anyone in the history of softball. She is UCLA Softball’s first athletic scholarship, All-American, National Champion, and Hall of Famer.
