New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Frank Supovitz, who spent the last nine years overseeing the National Football League's event management, announced he's departing the league in June to start his own business venture.
"We will miss his leadership and expertise, which has been instrumental in raising the level of all of our events," said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. "From the Draft to Kickoff to the Super Bowl to all the other events he managed, Frank consistently delivered results that were -- to use one of his favorite words -- spectacular. We look forward to the opportunity to work with him again."
Supovitz came to the NFL in 2005 after a 13-year stint with the National Hockey League as its general manager of marketing and vice president of events and entertainment.
"I have been honored to lead a team of dedicated professionals that work tirelessly behind the scenes to represent the NFL shield and stage its flagship events," Supovitz said. "I know that even more greatness is in store for America's Game."
Prior to his departure, Supovitz will aid in the production of the NFL Draft next month and in the search for the location of Super Bowl LII.
