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 scouting and analytics system implementation. 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 provided his front office Point of View for numerous sports media organizations, as he has appeared on ESPN.com, NHL Sirius Network Radio, and TSN Radio. Frank’s ‘Inside the War Room’ take can currently be regularly found on TheAthletic, where he weighs in on NHL issues from a management perspective, and Dallas’ 105.3 theFan radio, where he is known as ‘the GM of DFW’.
In addition to media, Frank has used his knowledge of sports and his passion for analytics and innovation (and his side interest in improvisational comedy) in the public speaking arena, as he has been a featured guest lecturer in the Sport Management programs at SMU and the University of Michigan and has also appeared as a panelist at the Sloan MIT Sports Analytics Conference in both 2015 & 2016.

His experience in the lecture hall has exposed the need for more career information for those people looking to get into the sports business. Frank is therefore launching FProU in 2018, which is an online lecture series designed to give people the practical career insights that they simply don’t teach in school.

In 2014, Frank founded FANSeye Sports, which combines his unique background in sports management, analytics and sports media. FANSeye is a both a player evaluation and a fan engagement platform designed specifically for the sports conversation and was officially launched in time for the start of the 2015 NFL season. FANSeye was re-developed and run as a beta version during the 2016-17 NHL season and is currently in continued product development.

Through his work on FANSeye, Frank has found that his background on the business side of sports has proven to be a valuable commodity in the technology field, and he has served as a consultant on several initiatives targeting that market.
