ACBL Names New CEO
The American Contract Bridge League announced that after an eight month search, its Board of Directors has appointed Mr. Robert Hartman as the new Chief Executive Officer of the ACBL, beginning November 7. Hartman will replace Jay Baum, who announced his retirement earlier this year after 10 years as Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Hartman is currently the Vice President and General Manager of Golden Gate Fields in Albany, CA. Previously, he was the Associate Athletic Director for the University of California, Berkeley in 2003-2005, and the Vice President of Marketing for Pallotta TeamWorks during 2000-2003.
“As an ACBL Life Master, I’m very excited about the opportunity to grow and further a game I am so passionate about,” said Hartman. “I look forward to utilizing my sports entertainment and marketing expertise for a long career with the ACBL.”
