Peter Feigin, President of the Milwaukee Bucks
The city's NBA franchise has been undergoing a dramatic transition in the last year. Featuring one of the youngest rosters in the league, the Bucks surprised observers with a return to the playoffs. But much of the change has been off the court, where there is new ownership and where, after a sometimes contentious debate, plans for a new downtown arena are moving forward. As president of the Bucks, Peter Feigin will be guiding the franchise through this key period in its history. Feigin has decades of sports, corporate management, and marketing experience, including a stint as vice-president of marketing for the New York Knicks. With a new season just beginning, Feigin will discuss the arena deal, the Bucks' vision for downtown, the team's effort to create new community partnerships, and what it takes to achieve success in one of the NBA's smallest markets.
