Tim Leiweke restructures senior management team at MLSE

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.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
