Frank Provenzano talks about why he built FANSeye
About Frank Provenzano
Frank Provenzano spent 17 years in NHL front offices with three different teams (Vancouver, Washington & Dallas) where his responsibilities included player evaluation, recruitment & management, contract negotiations and salary cap compliance. In his almost two decades in the NHL, there wasn’t a management issue that Frank didn’t come across, as he personally negotiated over 500 NHL player contracts and helped steer organizations from the depths of bankrupt owners all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals.
After leaving the Dallas Stars in 2013, Frank has developed a niche providing the front office Point of View for numerous sports media organizations, as he is a regular contributor for ESPN.com and can be heard weekly on Dallas’ 105.3 theFAN radio, where he is known as “the GM of DFW”.
In addition to media, Frank has taken his time away from the War Room to pursue his passion for Analytics, as he is a consultant to the Chicago-based e15 Group and has appeared as a panelist at the Sloan MIT Sports Analytics Conference in both 2015 and 2016.
In 2014, Frank founded FANSeye Sports, which combines his unique background in sports management, analytics and sports media. FANSeye is a player evaluation platform designed specifically for the sports conversation and was officially launched in time for the start of the 2015 NFL season. After the conclusion of it’s NFL test season, FANSeye was re-developed and its NHL beta version was relaunched in October 2016 .
