Chief Executive Officer and Alternate Governor

Charlie Jacobs

Charlie Jacobs serves as Chief Executive Officer of Delaware North, a family-owned, global leader in hospitality. Charlie also serves as Chief Executive Officer of the Boston Bruins and as Alternate Governor for the club on the NHL's Board of Governors.

Along with his brothers, Jerry Jacobs Jr. and Lou Jacobs, Charlie provides stewardship to the more than 100-year-old Delaware North and its seven operating subsidiaries, which include global industry leaders in food and retail operations at airports and sports venues, sports facility ownership and management, operations of parks and major tourist attractions, hotel ownership and management, gaming operations and fine dining and catering. Charlie also guides the strategic efforts for Delaware North's holdings in Boston, which includes TD Garden, The Hub on Causeway and the company's ownership share in New England Sports Network.

Charlie 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 $45 million to New England-based charitable organizations.

Foundation highlights from this past year included the donation of over $450,000 to COVID-19 response efforts and $600,000 to the families of fallen first responders. Charlie has been instrumental in the expansion of the Bruins Academy Learn to Play program, which increased its reach in the past year to eighty locations across New England with over 5,000 participants. Each participant received a full set of CCM equipment, skates, a professional personalized fitting and four weeks of on-ice instruction led by certified coaches.

It was under Charlie's guidance that the Boston Bruins current management group has been assembled and it was a tribute to his leadership 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."

Charlie is active in numerous local organizations, including The Massachusetts Business Roundtable, Boston College Chief Executives Club and The Sports Museum, where he serves on the Board.
