Bob Hunter, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment
Chief project development officer
Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment
Hunter’s vast reach in Greater Toronto covers three arenas and BMO Field, an MLS facility that’s undergone a $150 million retrofit to accommodate the CFL’s Argonauts. In his current role, Hunter oversees all development and construction activities across the company, and he’s training Nick Eaves, Maple Leaf Sports’ chief venues and operations officer, as his replacement. Hunter was on the ground floor for developing and operating Air Canada Centre, as well as Rogers Centre (the former Toronto SkyDome) and BC Place in Vancouver, both of which opened in the 1980s.
