DELAWARE NORTH NAMES NEW CAPTAIN FOR THEIR FLEET
Published September 6, 1996
Richard Krezwick, former GM of the Worcester Centrum, was appointed President of New Boston Garden Corp., the Delaware North Cos. subsidiary that owns the FleetCenter, according to Maria Shao in the BOSTON GLOBE. Krezwick will assume duties on September 16, succeeding Larry Moulter, who joined Bob Woolf Associates in June. Richard Stephens, President of Delaware North, said Krezwick "has experience in all facets of building management. What he's shown is a promotional and marketing flair that really intrigued me." Pat Moscaritolo, President of the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau: "The corporate people at Delaware North have said, 'We have our building now.' Now, they're going to have somebody more focused on sales and marketing and buildings." Krezwick acknowledged the marketing challenges ahead, considering the recent poor performance of the Celtics and Bruins and the "public griping" about high ticket and food prices. Krezwick: "The honeymoon is over." Krezwick added one of his big challenges will be keeping premium seat holders happy. Krezwick: "Suite sales drive the financing of a new facility" (BOSTON GLOBE, 9/6).
