Managing Transformation

Session Summary
Peter Feigin brings more than two decades of dynamic corporate leadership to the Milwaukee Bucks, where he’s charged with spearheading the next chapter of this storied team’s legacy. His talents are the key to helping realize the Bucks’ transformational vision: a championship team playing in a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose arena that will drive the creation of new partnerships, new jobs and a new sense of community for the city of Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin.

Since taking over as president of the Milwaukee Bucks in October of 2014, Peter has completely reimagined, rebuilt and reenergized the team’s business operations, resulting in substantial increases in attendance, ticket revenue, merchandise revenue, partnership sales and TV viewership. He has assembled a top-flight management team and instilled a new corporate culture marked by accountability, collaboration and fun.

Peter was instrumental in driving the vision, financing, planning, design and construction of Fiserv Forum, a $524 million, 17,500-seat sports and entertainment venue in downtown Milwaukee that opened on Aug. 26, 2018, as well as a new state-of-the-art training center for the Bucks, all of which is part of a 30-acre mixed-use development surrounding the project that will seamlessly link with existing developments on all sides to create a vibrant, urban community in the heart of Milwaukee. He has worked tirelessly to ensure that this historic project will be catalytic to the economic development of both the city of Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin.

Peter’s experience cuts across a wide spectrum of business and entertainment corporations, from the NBA to private aviation, and from digital media and motion pictures to theme parks. Prior to joining the Bucks, Peter served as the Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, a major international entertainment company, where he managed global business units and handled branding and business development. Prior to joining Deluxe, Peter was the President and Chief Operating Officer of Marquis Jet Partners Inc./NetJets, the world’s leading private aviation company. Peter was the driving force behind Berkshire Hathaway’s NetJets acquisition of Marquis Jet in 2010 and played a central role in the integration of the two companies. After transitioning post-merger to the same responsibilities at NetJets, he led the company to significant revenue growth. 

Peter is a native New Yorker. He and his wife, Natalia, have two children, Alexandra and Thomas. Peter holds a bachelor’s degree from Franklin and Marshall College and completed the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business’ Financial Executive Program.

Professional Development Session 1
Presented by Wipfli
Topic: Blockchain Technology

This presentation will talk about how development of blockchain technology continues to impact businesses of all sizes across the world. Is this the next biggest frontier after the advent of internet? Many are skeptics – with the cryptocurrency prices fluctuating so much, are we seeing the end of the road for this technology? But blockchain is not all about cryptocurrencies – the technology promises to change the way we look at many business processes such as supply chain, storage of medical records, analyzing manufacturing data, raising syndicated loans and many more. What do we need to do now, to get prepared?
