The Devils have announced that Marty Brodeur has returned to the organization as Executive Vice President of Business Development.
Brodeur will report to Devils Team President Hugh Weber and work across "all departments to identify, capitalize and develop on business opportunities for the Devils, Prudential Center and the outlying community. "
"It feels fantastic to be back home here in New Jersey," said Brodeur. "This unique opportunity will allow me to build on existing relationships in the business community and take on a new challenge in my career. I've been able to work in all facets of the game of hockey and have had a growing interest in the business surrounding the game. Working with Hugh and his team will be beneficial for all of us. Over 20 years in New Jersey, I was lucky enough to make connections that I can now use to help the Devils grow, not only in this area but beyond."
"Our objective over the last five years has been to solidify the New Jersey Devils organization as an agent of growth for our communities, our partners, and the great sport of hockey- on and off the ice," said Weber. "Marty's addition to our extraordinary collection of business executives driving our efforts will advance our results exponentially. The fabric of this organization was built over decades of Marty's commitment to excellence. His everyday presence will have a profound effect with our fans, our partners, and the community."
"Today is a special day for everyone," said Devils' Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero. "We are all thrilled to have Marty back with the organization. I said last season that it was an exciting time to be a Devils fan and that's especially true today. Welcome home, Marty!"
Brodeur had spent the last few seasons as an assistant GM in St. Louis.
