Redskins Hire Brian Lafeminaas Teams’s President of Business Operations and COF

Redskins have hired Brian Lafemina as the teams’s president of business operations and chief operating officer in a newly created position, Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post reports.

Lafemina will head the business side of operations and report to team owner Daniel Snyder, the team announced. He worked for the NFL the last eight years and spearheaded the Club Business Development. Lafemina also put together the team that developed and distributed best practices to each franchise in the league. He was directly involved in NFL-wide programs focused on fan experience, ticketing strategy, Super Bowl strategy, Pro Bowl strategy and stadium development.

“I am thrilled to welcome Brian to the Washington Redskins,” Snyder said in a statement. “Brian has been one of the most highly regarded NFL executives amongst league ownership for many years because of his deep understanding of our business, his focus on partner relationships and his genuine belief that fans must be at the center of every decision we make.”

“Brian is coming to Washington with fresh thinking and big ideas to implement, and I have full confidence that with Brian’s addition and with Bruce Allen continuing as team president, the Redskins’ success will continue to grow, both on and off the field.”

The hire was a year in the making after Snyder first tried to poach Lafemina from the league offices. He previously held multiple positions over a 22-year span with the Madison Square Garden Company, finishing as senior vice president of Madison Square Garden Sports.
