Charlie Jacobs serves as Chief Executive Officer of Delaware North's Boston Holdings. Jacobs, who is entering his 19th season in Boston, also serves the Bruins as Alternate Governor on the NHL's Board of Governors, a position he has held since 2000.
A member of the senior leadership team for all of Delaware North's global operations, he guides the strategic efforts for the family and company holdings in Boston, which includes the Boston Bruins, TD Garden, various strategic real estate interests and the company's ownership share in New England Sports Network.
A major project currently underway for Jacobs and Delaware North in Boston is the Hub on Causeway, a transformational project that sits directly on the site of the former Boston Garden. The Hub on Causeway includes 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use retail, office, hotel and residential space. The project connects directly to TD Garden through a new 10,000 square foot grand entrance and it sits atop North Station, a busy transit hub that moves 50,000 commuters through the city every day.
Coinciding with the Hub on Causeway is a massive expansion of TD Garden, which fans will begin to experience throughout the 2019-20 season. The $100 million private investment by the Jacobs family will provide a combined 50,000 square feet of additional space on all levels of the building. The legendary transformation of the 24-year-old arena includes new premium spaces, upgraded concession offerings and a wide variety of fan amenities that will vastly improve the event goer experience.
Outside of TD Garden, Jacobs and Delaware North continue to expand the company's commitments in and around the city of Boston. Over the past three years, in conjunction with Boston Mayor Martin Walsh and the city, Delaware North has operated Boston Seasons at City Hall Plaza, which has revitalized the existing plaza through various programming and events.
Outside of City Hall Plaza, Delaware North's Travel subsidiary operates a mix of twelve new restaurant and retail offerings at Boston Logan Airport. Most recently, Delaware North's Patina Restaurant Group began operating the restaurant and special events division at the world-renowned New England Aquarium in downtown Boston.
It was under Jacobs' leadership that the Boston Bruins current management group has been assembled and it was a tribute to his stewardship when the Bruins were named the Sport Business Journal's 2012 Sports Team of the Year based on the criteria of "excellence, growth, creativity, innovation, sound planning, implementation and outcomes."
Jacobs serves as the Founder and Chairman of the Boston Bruins Foundation, whose mission is to assist charitable organizations that demonstrate a commitment to enhancing the quality of life for children and their families throughout New England. Since its inception in 2003, the Boston Bruins Foundation has contributed more than $35 million to New England charitable organizations.
