Do you watch National Football League (NFL) a lot? Then, you must know the Kansas City Chiefs club. Okay, agreed that you know this club, do you know who the owner is? These are questions you would get answers to, in this piece.
Hold up! Tavia Shackles is who we are examining in this article. Yes, Tavia, a name that sounds French sexy (or maybe we just have a pretty way of describing, oh well, you decide) is the beautiful wife of Clark Hunt.
Who is Clark Hunt?
Clark Knobel Hunt is the chairman and joint owner of Kansas City Chiefs. He also oversees the operations of FC Dallas, formerly known as the Columbus Crew.
He also is a founding investor-cum-owner in Major League Soccer. Yes, your thoughts are right.
This man here is a billionaire, and even better, is from the lineage of billionaires. Hunt is the grandson of the late Texas oil tycoon, Haroldson Hunt, a Republican activist.
Born on February 19, 1965, in the affluent city of Texas, Hunt had his high school education from St. Mark’s School of Texas, before getting his business administration degree from Southern Methodist University in 1987.
He had a thing for sports back then (perhaps, played a role in his current position in the Major League Soccer and the National Football League). He was captain of his university soccer team which was nationally ranked.
Hunt’s Journey with Kansas City Chiefs
Remember we said the Hunts are from a stinking wealthy family? That’s right! Well, Clark’s father, Lamar Hunt, actually owned and founded Kansas City Chiefs before his demise in 2006. However, his son, Clark had risen to the position of chairman of the club.
After his death, Clark, his sister, and his two brothers inherited the ownership of Chiefs. But guess who is heading the franchise? Our guy, Clark.
Hunt has steadily guided the Chiefs and they have won trophies and his management of the team has received praises far and wide.
Aside from his leadership skills having an effect on the team, Hunt was made the Chairman of the NFL Finance Committee after serving devotedly as a mere member for almost a decade. This is a testament to his insatiable hunger for excellence.
