Brad Mayne Hired To Replace Lamping As President & CEO At MetLife Stadium
BRAD MAYNE has been hired as MetLife Stadium President & CEO, and will begin his new duties in early September, confirmed Giants President & CEO JOHN MARA. Mayne has spent the past 14 years as President & CEO of Center Operating Co., the firm that manages American Airlines Center in Dallas on behalf of the Mavericks and Stars. Mayne will head a similar joint venture that runs the NFL stadium for the Giants and Jets. In that respect, Mayne was the best fit for the MetLife Stadium job with his experience balancing the interests of two major league teams sharing one facility, according to Mara. Working for multiple owners in Dallas, most recently the Mavericks’ MARK CUBAN and the Stars’ TOM GAGLARDI, Mayne has “seen everything, except maybe four Super Bowl [wins by the Giants],” Mara said. “He is the right guy at the right time.” Mayne replaces MARK LAMPING, who left in February to become the new Jaguars President. Before Dallas, Mayne managed Honda Center in Anaheim and arenas in Tacoma and Cedar Rapids. He also was assistant GM at the old Salt Palace in Salt Lake City. Turnkey Sports & Entertainment led the search to find Lamping’s successor.
