(Frederick J. Whitney, Timothy M. Whitney). The remaining two investment partners have chosen to keep their partnerships private.

Whitney Holdings Inc. was created by Frederick J. Whitney and Timothy M. Whitney in August 2011 for the purpose of investing in the Carolina Hurricanes Hockey Club. Jim Rutherford is in his 18th year as general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, making him the longest-tenured general manager in franchise history and the second-longest tenured general manager currently serving in the NHL. Under Rutherford, the Hurricanes have earned a 487-432-139-20 regular-season record since arriving in North Carolina, including a pair of trips to the Stanley Cup Final and the first Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history in 2006. Rutherfords management efforts were recognized in 2002 and 2006, when The Hockey News named him Executive of the Year, and in 2006 when he was voted by his NHL management peers as the Sporting News Executive of the Year. In 2006, he was also named the Triangles Businessperson of the Year by the Triangle Business Journal.
