TIBCO Software chairman Vivek Ranadive confirmed his involvement in Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson’s group to keep the Kings in town Thursday.
“Looking forward to supporting @KJ_MayorJohnson as we work towards keeping the @SacramentoKings where they belong. #HereWeStay” Ranadive tweeted.
Ranadive is a minority owner of the Golden State Warriors. His company, TIBCO, creates automation software and earned more than $1 billion in 2012.
He will be teaming with former 24-Hour Fitness owner Mark Mastrov and business magnate Ron Burkle in the city’s effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento.
