No. 97: Brett Yormark | Power 100
BRETT YORMARK, 51
CEO, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment
Last Year's Rank: New
ACHIEVEMENT OF THE YEAR: Reopened the Nassau Coliseum on New York's Long Island as NYCB Live after a $180 million renovation.
THE YEAR AHEAD: Through BSE's properties, which will soon include the recently acquired Webster Hall and Paramount Theater, Yormark is creating a pipeline that will allow acts to grow within the family. "It's about connecting with artists early and often in their careers, using smaller venues to do that," he says. Meanwhile, Brooklyn flagship Barclays Center marked its fifth anniversary and was the third-highest-grossing U.S. venue, with $83.7 million in revenue.
