Following an extensive Turnkey Search, the Tampa Bay Lightning have named former Feld Entertainment executive Casey Rodgers to the position of Chief Financial Officer. The position has been vacant since the resignation of former CFO Martha Fuller in 2012.
Said Lightning CEO Steve Griggs, “Casey’s vast experience and broad financial and business acumen in the entertainment industry will make him a vital part of our senior leadership team.”
Rodgers, who began his tenure with Feld in 1998 as a Senior Financial Analyst and ultimately rose to the rank of Vice President, Strategic and Financial Planning, sees many opportunities in his new position with the Bolts, noting “I have admired the company from afar and now that I have personally met the leadership, I am impressed by the organization’s commitment to positively impacting the Tampa Bay community, its dedication to the employees, and its execution of strategic growth.”
