New York, NY – DiBella Entertainment (DBE) is excited to announce the hiring of its new Director of Boxing Operations and Matchmaking, Eric Bentley.
Joining the DBE staff, Bentley will be bringing a wealth of knowledge from his 10 years of experience in the boxing industry. As a native of New York, he had worked for the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) for over five years and served as its Director of Boxing under Executive Director David Berlin. He was also a finalist for the Executive Director position of the Nevada State Athletic Commission in early 2014.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be working for DiBella Entertainment,” said Bentley. “I enjoyed my time at NYSAC and learned a tremendous amount from David Berlin, but it was the right time to move on and there’s no better place to go than DiBella Entertainment. There aren’t many more genuine and passionate guys than Lou (DiBella) and he has surrounded himself with a phenomenal team, of which I’m excited to be a part.”
“DiBella Entertainment has strengthened itself greatly with the hiring of Eric Bentley,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “Eric was previously a quality matchmaker and then a highly respected executive with the New York State Athletic Commission. He will bolster my staff, which is already one of the finest in the boxing promotional business.”
