Steve Rosenberg

Steve Rosenberg has managed, marketed and operated some of America’s best-known and most interesting events, concepts, and projects—from Celebrity All Star Hockey to the National Hockey League neutral site games, The Book and the Cook Fair, Welcome America Festival, Disney’s World on Ice, Nickelodeon Live, the WWE, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and many more. He has been part of the grand opening team of eight public assembly facilities across the U.S., including the Pepsi Center, WonderWorks, the National Constitution Center, Independence Visitor Center, and Colorado’s Ocean Journey.  

He began his career with the Washington Bullets (now Wizards) where he learned how to manage multiple bosses and requests. He learned very quickly that the person who is able to get the most done in an efficient manner is going to go the farthest and be the most productive. Throughout his career, he has been called upon to make things happen when others were unable to do so. When he hears “no,” that is when his instincts take over. A serial networker and relationship builder, Rosenberg understands that a person’s success is not only predicated upon the contacts they make. The follow up and how those relationships build over time are equally important.

Rosenberg earned a degree in sports management from the University of Maryland. He is on the board of several civic and nonprofit organizations, including as a Co-Founder of Philadelphia Youth Basketball, City of Philadelphia Army Navy Game Host Committee, the World Maccabiah Games, the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, and is Board Chair of the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. He is also very involved in Coaches vs. Cancer, the Pete and Jameer Nelson Foundation and the K- Low Elite AAU and spends his free time volunteering with youth-based organizations. He has been an adjunct professor in the School of Tourism and Hospitality at Temple University. 

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Rosenberg lives in Center City, Philadelphia with his wife.
