In an announcement made on the morning of July 8th, 2019, the Suit and Tie Network has officially named a Head of the Network. Mark Printz has been hired and brought on board as the first ever network head for Suit and Tie. Printz will assume the position effective immediately. Mark will also continue to work for our sports brand, Wise Guys Sports as a blogger, podcaster and content creator. Mark has been working on Wise Guys Sports since its inception in May of 2019 and is known to our Wise Guys fans as "Drama", a nickname that was given to him by peers for being very comparable to the Entourage TV Show character, Johnny "Drama" Chase.
As Head of the Network, Printz will oversee the entire Suit and Tie Network and the talent and brands that have been signed to a contract with Suit and Tie. He will be lead producer for the Suit and Tie Radio channel and will also will oversee content in the Suit and Tie Blogspot. Mark will be a talent manager for our signed brands and talent individuals. He will be actively seeking opportunities for our brands to blog, podcast, create online content and get them to the next level with their careers with Suit and Tie. He will also oversee all social media and online activity produced by Suit and Tie.
Printz will resume his role as manager of the Wise Guys Sports brand under the Suit and Tie Network. He will continue to create sports content, blogs and podcasts for Wise Guys. He will oversee all sponsorships and partnerships with Wise Guys like the newly formed partnership with "Tailgate Nation" (Formerly known as Nik Lewis Nation) one of the best tailgate parties for the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL.. He will also begin work on the Suit and Tie Networks junior hockey campaign which will see Wise Guys Sports begin heavy coverage of every team in the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL). This is an effort to become the first network in Alberta to feature and treat the AJHL like all the the major sports networks in Canada treat the National Hockey League.
"I am beyond excited and thrilled to be named as the Head of the Network for Suit and Tie. This is a build up of years of hard work and I can't thank the "boss" enough for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to do something like this as a career. With everyone involved with Suit and Tie, we are all working towards the same goal of becoming the go to network for branded content in Alberta. If you have a talent, if you have a brand, if you want to showcase what you're great at ... we are the place to to come to. Our goal is to showcase people who have a passion or have built a brand but may not have the resources to get to that next level. We are always going to try new things and will always be open to provide opportunities to people who want to be part of the Suit and Tie Network and get to the top of the mountain with us.
I am very much looking forward to working with Brandon Houck, "The Doppler Boy". Brandon is an unimaginably talented individual and I personally don't know anyone better at reporting the weather like Doppler Boy does. He built up his brand and following over social media all on his own and he is someone we can lean on to be one of the very best brands with Suit and Tie. In working together with Brandon we are going to propel him to that next level of stardom that he deserves to be at by all the hard work he has put in to his brand to date." - Mark Printz
