4 execs we'd like to see undercover
Published October 18, 2010, Page 36
With that in mind, here are four bosses we’d like to see undercover:
Kevin Compton — The San Jose Sharks co-owner flies under the radar and possesses the type of genial manner and compassionate attitude that would make working alongside his colleagues fun to watch.
Larry Tanenbaum — As the largest shareholder of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, the press-shy construction magnate is one of the few team owners who could deliver an episode featuring the NBA (Raptors), NHL (Leafs) and MLS (Toronto FC).
Eric Grubman — Seeing the NFL’s executive vice president of finance and former Goldman Sachs executive work in the trenches in the midst of labor negotiations would be an education for both Grubman and viewers.
Mark Tatum — The NBA’s executive vice president of global marketing partnerships is known for his big smile and gregarious personality, making him perfect for jobs like ticket-taking and concession sales at an NBA All-Star Game.
