He also has served as president of Millsport, a leading sports marketing agency working with major brands; director, marketing asset management in the sports and entertainment marketing division at Coca-Cola USA; and vice president, Cartoon Network Brand for Turner Broadcasting.

According to O'Neil, “The transformation of Madison Square Garden provides even more opportunities for our team to create lasting memories for our fans and provide unmatched partnership opportunities for the corporate community. Our relentless pursuit of unrivaled and world class executive talent continues to pay off for our growing busines. There is nothing more important than attracting, retaining and in these cases promoting world class talent. Howard, Mike and Sean have each helped lead their groups to great heights during their time at 'The World's Most Famous Arena.'”

The ‘Foxwoods Final Five’ represents another way that MSG is able to offer marketing partners unique integration opportunities with our teams, venues and networks that no other company in New York can provide.”

Echoed Art Ventura, svp-sales, MSG Media, “This partnership represents a brand new way to integrate partners into an exciting part of the game telecast. MSG Media is one of the few television outlets in the country that can provide this collection of assets – five professional teams – in which a partner could own the last five minutes of a telecast, and we are proud to partner with Foxwoods on this unique program.”
