The new shareholders in AS Nancy Lorraine
Chinese-American dog Lee
In the media in France, he is the most well-known of the five major investors who have just taken over ASNL. It is explained with his three years in office at OGC Nice as a majority shareholder (2016-2019). We also find Chien Lee today in the management of the English club Barnsley, in the Swiss club Thun and at KV Oostende, obviously, since the Belgian club has the same shareholders as ASNL. Chinese-American Chien Lee made his fortune in the hotel and real estate industry, but those who have already worked with him describe him as a paternalistic, human investor, close to his partners.
American Paul Conway
We saw it for the first time in Valenciennes together with the President Gauthier Ganaye which manages ASNL on a daily basis. And we saw Paul Conway last Saturday in the stands of Marcel-Picot for the fight against Rodez. Not surprising. Although he lives in Miami, Paul Conway comes to Europe regularly. He has a reputation for being a fieldman, a passionate person. He too was part of the Nice adventure in Nice, until a qualification in the Champions League. Together with Grace Hung, a woman, Paul Conway runs Pacific Media Group, which specializes in the sports and entertainment industry. Especially in the production of great Hollywood movies, some with Brad Pitt! Let him bring the star actor back to Picot whenever he wants, of course!
American Randy Frankel
At the head of a rather colossal fortune, Randy Frankel is the co-owner of the baseball series of the Rays of Tampa Bay, Florida. A club that has become a benchmark in the United States thanks to innovative and ambitious leadership. He did not accidentally choose baseball to begin with. His approach to the sport is actually statistically driven, inspired by the true and incredible story of Billy Beane with Oakland Athletics in the early 2000s in American baseball. A story that gave rise to the book “Moneyball”, then a movie “Le Stratège” in France with a certain … Brad Pitt (hey, hey) in the lead role. We better understand why the new ASNL shareholders will use the “data” as much as possible, statistics, in recruitment. The former baseball player Billy Beane, he invested in the football club in … Barnsley where we find Chien Lee and Paul Conway, among others. The world is small.
American Michael Kalt
Michael Kalt was actively involved in the turnaround of the Tampa Bay Rays Florida baseball franchise, affiliated with Randy Frankel of the “Partners Path Capital” group. Michael Kalt also worked for the former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg.
South Indian Krishen
A profile slightly different from the other four shareholders. Sør-Krishen is of Indian origin the founder of “Sivik Healthcare Funds”, an organization that invests in the health industry. In any case, it makes many people at the bedside of ASNL!
