BOSTON -- Nate Greenberg has announced today his plan to retire from the Boston Bruins at the end of June.
"This was a decision full of mixed emotions for me," said Greenberg. "The Bruins have been the cornerstone of my life for 34 years, and while I am sure I will miss the organization, I am very excited about starting the next phase of my life, especially my new role as a grandfather.
"I wish to thank all the talented people that I have worked with over the years in Boston and throughout the hockey community. And I would be remiss if I didn't specifically thank Harry Sinden for giving me the many opportunities that I have had over the years."
Greenberg joined the Bruins in 1973 as the head of public relations after previously working for the Boston Traveler as a hockey writer. In 1989 when Harry Sinden was elevated to team President, Greenberg was named the Senior Assistant to the President, and put in charge of a number of hockey and business related initiatives.
"There is no one who I respect more than Nate Greenberg," stated Sinden, who currently serves as Senior Advisor to Jeremy Jacobs, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delaware North Companies, Inc. "Nate has been an integral part of the Bruins organization for the past 34 years, and his many accomplishments speak to the dedication that he had to his job, the sport of hockey and the City of Boston."
"I have known Nate for years and truly appreciate the contributions he has made to the Boston Bruins over the years," said Executive Vice President of the Boston Bruins and Delaware North Companies-Boston, Charlie Jacobs. "Our family certainly appreciates everything he has done to champion the Boston Bruins in the community."
Greenberg and his wife Karin reside in Newton, MA.
