The real brains behind the promotion for more than a few years. She has good reason to make the comment about women being smarter than men.

By all accounts her ex-husband John Ringley got a lot of credit but it was really her, or so I was told by people there.

EVERY man I ever spoke with that passed thru Charlotte in the 1970's after Jim Sr died into the early 80's told me the same. Frances ran the company with her mother and Jim Jr was the front.

Jim Sr passed in 1973.

Yes. Passed thru the territory in the 1970's after Sr died. Into the 1980's. Time period of about 10 years before Jim Jr took control.

Worth pointing out that in 1982 she won The Sporting News AA Baseball Executive of the Year award.

Under the ownership of the Crockett family all trademarks pertaining to the Charlotte O's baseball club were registered with the USPTO to a corporation called Charlotte Sports Promotions. This was either a subsidiary or otherwise relative of Jim Crockett Promotions and probably served as the operating company for the club.

Didn't Flair have some far from complimentary words for him in his book? Can't remember exactly what but the name is ringing a bell.

John Ringley was basically the designated successor to head Jim Crockett Promotions after the passing of Jim, Sr. but he messed everything up by having an extramarital affair. I haven't looked at Flair's book in a long time but I remember that being in there.

I have several newspaper articles from January 28, 1971 up to August 29, 1974 saying that John Ringley was the President of Ringley and Crockett Promotions Incorporated. It looks like Jim Crockett Sr. may have stepped down about two years before his death at age 64.
