Lead New Meadowlands Stadium Co.
OUTSIDE THE BOX: NFL Giants co-Owner JOHN MARA said Lamping's hiring was a "little out of the box because he wasn't known as a building operator but as an executive who oversaw one." Mara added Busch Stadium is "one of the best facilities in the country." In N.Y., Richard Sandomir reports Lamping's responsibilities will include "running the stadium's marketing, selling its sponsorships, naming rights and luxury suites, and attracting non-football events." Lamping said one of the goals of the new stadium is to "make sure each team and each team's fans feel that it's their stadium.'' Lamping in '07 was identified by an executive search firm and met in N.Y. with Mara, Giants Chair & Exec VP STEVE TISCH, Jets Owner WOODY JOHNSON and Jets President JAY CROSS (N.Y. TIMES, 3/14).
