Madison Square Garden Entertainment President Jay Marciano has resigned from that position and will be named CEO of Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) Europe, sources told Billboard.biz. He will replace David Campbell, who left that position at AEG in February to become a top executive with Formula One racing.
Marciano, a veteran executive in the venue and live entertainment space, joined MSGE in March of 2005. As President of MSGE, Marciano oversaw bookings and productions at Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, the Theater at Madison Square Garden, the Beacon Theatre, and the Chicago Theatre, among other projects, including the touring and residency productions of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and a $10 million renovation of the Beacon.
Marciano will relocate from New York to London, where he will run all of AEG's European operations, including the O2 Arena, the top-grossing arena in the world for the past two years (a position long-held by the Garden).
