As president and CEO of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA), Gettysburg College alumnus Wayne Hasenbalg ’76 brings good times to the Garden State.
He oversees all of the NJSEA’s facilities, including MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, and the American Dream entertainment complex at the Meadowlands.
Hasenbalg, who previously served as deputy chief of staff for policy and planning in the Governor’s Office, was offered the position by Gov. Chris Christie more than two years ago and entrusted with pulling off the first-ever mass transit Super Bowl.
“One of the big reasons he wanted me to take the job was Super Bowl XLVIII,” Hasenbalg said. “He reminded me why it was so important to him and the state—we needed to put a great face on it for New Jersey.”
