76ers Hire Industry Vet Chris Heck As Chief Revenue Officer
Veteran sports exec Chris Heck has been hired by the 76ers as the team's new Chief Revenue Officer. "It was the easiest conversation about a hire I've ever had with someone," said 76ers President Scott O'Neil. "Chris knows how to run the business side of a team and during his time at the NBA showed an ability to handle a range of issues." Heck was last MLS Red Bulls President of Business Operations. Prior to that, he worked at the NBA with O'Neil, serving as Senior VP/Marketing Partnerships and Senior VP/Team Business Operations from '04-11.
