Tom Wilson will soon work for llitch Holdings, sources tell Action News. Having resigned last week as president and CEO of the Pistons and their owner, Palace Sports and Entertainment, he now joins the company that owns the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings.

Wilson will be responsible for heading up all the talks surrouding a new stadium for the Detroit Red Wings. The move is right up Wilson’s alley considering he was involved in the building of the Palace in Auburn Hills.

He will report directly to Mike Ilitch. It is not yet known if Ken Holland and Dave Dombrowski will report to Wilson.
