ScottO’Neil

As Chief Executive Officer of the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center, a state-of-the-art multi-purpose arena located in Newark, N.J., Scott O’Neil oversees the business operations of three of the top brands in sports and entertainment. A former President of Madison Square Garden and senior leader of the NBA’s renown Team Marketing and Business Operations, O’Neil has earned a reputation in the sports and entertainment industry as an dynamic business innovator and leader of leaders. Within the last year O’Neil has led his organization to sign the first jersey patch sponsorship in 'big four' sports history, construct the largest and most technically advanced training complex in professional sports, establish an industry-leading innovation lab, and become the first professional sports franchise to acquire a world renowned eSports team. Of all his professional accomplishments O’Neil credits his organizations' “Best Business” and two-time “Best Place to Work” honors, and the 22,000 hours his employees devote annually to community service, as his greatest successes. O’Neil will share his unique insights into the important role of culture in building sports and entertainment organizations, as well as how rightsholders can stay ahead of the curve—and the competition.
