Managing Director Ilhan Geckil quoted in Forbes.

Managing Director Ilhan Geckil was quoted in Forbes article: Seattle Mariners’ Playoff Return Could Jump-Start An Economic Resurgence.

The article looks at Geckil’s model to measure the correlation between sports franchise revenues/valuations and the team’s on-field success:

“Winning should help move the needle. Ilhan Geckil, managing director of the economic research firm Econ One, created a model to measure the effect of on-field success on team revenues, and by extension team valuations. Controlling for variables such as market size, median household income in the surrounding area, stadium ownership and other factors, his research found that over the past 12 years there was an undeniable correlation in MLB, even among powerhouse teams like the New York Yankees.”
