TORONTO - Tim Leiweke continues to put his stamp on Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment.

The new president and CEO has announced he's restructuring the company's senior management team to "enable us to better serve our fans and customers."

The new senior leadership group will comprise of Tom Anselmi as chief operating officer, Ian Clarke as chief financial officer, David Hopkinson as chief commercial officer, Peter Miller as chief legal and development officer and Bob Hunter as chief facilities and live entertainment officer.

All members of the senior management will report directly to Leiweke.

Other appointments include Shannon Hosford as vice-president, marketing and communications, Jeff Deline as vice-president, global partnerships and Tom Pistore as vice-president, ticket sales and service.

Leiweke says the new company structure is "driven by the need to make the best use of (MLSE's) resources."

The restructuring results in the departure of several MLSE executives.

Leiweke was hired by MLSE in April.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
