MP Tony Argiz, Named President and Chairman of the Board of the Orange Bowl Committee

MP Tony Argiz of Miami-based Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra (FY08 net revenue of $59.1 million) was recently installed as the 72 nd President and Chairman of the Board of the Orange Bowl Committee.

Argiz, the MP of an IPA Best of the Best firm, an IPA Top 100 and an IPA Most Admired Peer, is entering his 10th year with the committee. Argiz received the gavel from Phillis Oeters, who served as President and Chair during the OBC’s most-recent Festival in 2009-10.

Argiz will preside over the Orange Bowl Committee for the 2010-11 Festival, which includes the 77th Annual FedEx Orange Bowl, the 17th Annual MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic and the 12th season of the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance. The FedEx Orange Bowl will be played on January 3, 2011 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens.

“I look forward to engaging my fellow members on The Orange Bowl Committee, which has been a tremendous economic partner to South Florida, bringing in thousands of fans that spend millions on an annual basis,” says Argiz, who was first elected to the OBC in 2000.
