NJSEA President Stepping Down To Assume Role With F1 Race
New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority officials Friday said that DENNIS ROBINSON “is stepping down as president” to take on “a leading role with the new Formula One auto race in Weehawken that is scheduled to debut in 2013,” according to John Brennan of the Bergen RECORD. Robinson “served four years” as president and his resignation “is effective Jan. 2.” He will become The Grand Prix of America COO. Brennan wrote the sports authority’s “role at the 35-year-old Meadowlands Sports Complex is waning” (Bergen RECORD, 12/17). During Robinson’s tenure, the NJSEA “was also part of a successful campaign to bring the Super Bowl to the Meadowlands, in 2014 -- the first time the game will be played outdoors in ‘cold weather’” (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 12/17).
