The transition has been in the works for the past two years but was only recently completed in early March. Weingarten will now serve as president, while Angell becomes IMG's "chief opinionator." 

Angell says the time was right for the transition: "I wish to hand over a company that's in good shape while I'm still in good enough shape myself to help in an orderly transition. I have taken my measure of the man and am convinced that Jeff is our best choice to lead us in the continuing adventure." 

As for the future, IMG ( is developing strategies to capitalize on the convergence of television and data. Weingarten, who joined the facility in 1989, also plans to expand IMG's work for ad agencies, broadcast and cable entities, direct television marketers, government, corporate, political clients, and independent producers.
