76ers and Devils co-Owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer have created a new entity called Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment (HBSE) that puts both franchises, along with Prudential Center, into a single organization. 76ers, Devils and Prudential Center CEO Scott O’Neil has been named HBSE CEO. Devils President Hugh Weber will continue his job and also has been named HBSE President. 76ers Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Chris Heck has been promoted to President of Business Operations, while Exec VP Lara Price becomes COO. Jake Reynolds becomes 76ers CRO, but will retain his role as Senior VP/Ticket Sales & Service for both the 76ers and Devils. “I will focus on growing the company and we want to continue on that path,” O’Neil said. Many business operations of the teams are being combined under the new structure, but O’Neil would not disclose any specific job cuts across the franchises. “All the logical places where you would find scale is what we have done,” he said. Other Blitzer and Harris owned properties, such as its esports franchise Team Dignitas, the NBA G League Delaware 87ers and the Sixers Innovation Lab, are included under HBSE.
