CHRIS WIDMAIER

U.S. Tennis Association
Managing director,
corporate communications

Tennis is the center of the New York sports universe for two weeks every year, and guiding the messaging that has led the U.S. Open to become one of the hottest tickets in sports is Widmaier. The rest of the year he oversees the U.S. Tennis Association’s efforts to publicize the sport, whether that’s through the new National Campus in Orlando, the $600 million renovation of the National Tennis Center, or the steady stream of public play initiatives that the USTA promotes.
