  Hugh Weber – President, Business Operations

As president of business operations, oversees all aspects of Devils Arena Entertainment, including the franchise’s business operations and Prudential Center. Weber has a track record of creating fan-friendly, partnership-driven and “elite” best-in-class organizations.

Most recently, Weber was president and alternate governor of the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets. In his seven-year tenure, the organization experienced success on and off the court.

The team achieved record-setting ticket sales and sponsorship numbers while creating a number of significant community initiatives. Through the tireless efforts of every employee, coach and player, the Hornets’ organization gained long-term stability in the region under difficult circumstances.

The organization took a leading role in the renaissance of the region. In an unprecedented initiative, “100 events in 100 nights,” the team executed small gatherings hosted in the homes of current season ticket holders, partners, and local businesses. Through a coordinated effort, the team secured financial success, a long- term lease with the state, and stable local ownership.

In 2010, Weber reorganized the Hornets’ basketball operations, using a collaborative philosophy, defined value system, and strong work ethic as key principles. He was able to assemble one of the best young organizations in the league, described by some as an “All-Star” team. Weber brought in a dynamic, young head coach in Monty Williams, and hired General Manager Dell Demps, a prodigy from the highly- successful San Antonio Spurs organization.

Prior to his role as team president, Weber served as chief operations officer and vice president of business operations, overseeing all aspects of the New Orleans market, while the team was temporarily headquartered in Oklahoma City from 2005-2007.

Weber is a board member of a variety of community, economic development and entrepreneurship organizations, reflecting his priority to invest in the community.

Hugh has four children, Brenna (19), Zoë (19), Hugh III (13) and Jackson (12). In addition to his Devils’ duties, he enjoys running, reading and being a father.
