Tad Brown has agreed to become the CEO of the New Jersey Devils

Former Houston Rockets CEO Tad Brown has agreed to become the CEO of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, the entity that owns the Sixers along with the Devils and the Prudential Center.

The news was first reported by ESPN’s NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski and later announced by the teams.

“I want to thank Josh Harris and David Blitzer for this incredible opportunity to lead HBSE in its next chapter,” Brown said in a statement. “This role not only allows me to work for innovators like Josh and David; it also allows me to work alongside some of the industry’s best talent that has been assembled across the HBSE organization. This is a world-class sports and entertainment organization that cares about the cities and fans it serves. My family and I are thrilled to begin our new journey, and I’m eager to help guide HBSE to even greater heights.”

Brown replaced O’Neil, the longtime Sixers executive who announced in June that he was leaving to pursue other ventures.

“We are thrilled to welcome Tad to the HBSE family,” Harris said in a statement. “Tad is an exceptional leader in our industry and one with a deep passion for innovation and community engagement. With nearly twenty years of experience leading the Houston Rockets and Toyota Center, we are confident that he will bring a fresh energy and new ideas to our teams, organization, and local communities.”

Founder, Editor-in-Chief, & CEO at Hooked on Hockey Magazine
I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
