Pilot Pen Will Not Renew in New Haven

The New Haven Register today reports that Pilot Pen will not renew title sponsorship of the professional tennis event in New Haven following the 2010 tournament. The sponsorship, estimated to be worth $1.4 million a year, began in 1996.

“We have enjoyed being the title sponsor of the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament” said Dennis Burleigh, President and CEO of Pilot Pen Corporation of America in a release obtained by the newspaper. “Unfortunately, the economic recession has severely impacted our consumers and the office products industry in particular, necessitating this difficult decision.”
