MOST COMMENTED

Shawn Hunter, a former NHL, NBA and, most recently Anschutz Entertainment Group executive, has been named President and Chief Executive Officer of Chivas USA. Last week, Javier Leon left his post as Chivas USA CEO and GM.

For the last five years at AEG, Hunter held the dual titles of Chief Marketing Officer and President, AEG Sports.

Hunter oversaw AEG's marquee sports events and eleven sports teams worldwide, as well as the company's marketing partnership with Chivas USA.

Prior to joining AEG, Hunter, 44, was president of the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes, executive vice president of the NHL Colorado Avalanche, and corporate account executive with the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves

Hunter was one of AEG's representatives on MLS's Board of Directors and played a role in the formulation of the Designated Player Rule, which led to MLS's siging of Juan Pablo Angel, Claudio Reyna, Cuauhtémoc Blanco and David Beckham. On behalf of AEG, Hunter also secured the Galaxy's multimillion dollar jersey sponsorship following Beckham's signing.
