Delaware North Chairman and Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs on Thursday was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Global Sports Summit in Aspen, Colo.
After being presented the award by Washington Nationals principal owner Ed Cohen, Mr. Jacobs — the longest-tenured owner in the National Hockey League (NHL) — joined a panel discussion with Bruins President Cam Neely and Wendy Selig-Prieb, a member of Delaware North’s board of directors and former president and CEO of the Milwaukee Brewers, a longtime Delaware North Sportservice client.
Neely, a Hockey Hall of Famer and legendary former Bruins player, and Selig-Prieb each discussed Mr. Jacobs’ legacy with Delaware North, the Bruins and the NHL, while also sharing personal memories of their experiences with him throughout their respective careers.
The reception took place at the St. Regis Hotel as part of the three-day Global Sports Summit, which is an annual gathering of franchise owners and presidents from the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, European Football and other professional sports teams.
