The Madison Square Garden company has announced that David Hopkinson is its new Executive Vice President of Sports Operations and President of Team Business Operations. He is stepping into the office that Kristin Bernert chose to step away from her role earlier this year. Bernert was MSG’s Executive VP of Sports Operations since Dec. 2019 and will stay with the company for a few months to aid in the transition.

Prior to taking this position at MSG, Hopkinson was the Global Head of Partnerships for Real Madrid Club de Futbol and spent over two decades with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. In his new position, he’ll work on commercial strategy for both the New York Rangers and the Hartford Wolf Pack in addition to other franchises under the MSG umbrella.
