As a global pandemic put everything on pause, NBC Sports looked to Pete Bevacqua as it sought to bring live sports back.
Bevacqua took over as Chairman of NBC Sports Group and its extensive portfolio of properties — including NBC Sports, NBC Olympics, and Golf Channel — in September 2020. In just over two years, he has been at the center of major media rights negotiations with the likes of the NFL and the PGA Tour. Bevacqua has also led NBC Sports through navigating the integration of sports betting and helped finalize a multi-year partnership with PointsBet.
Prior to joining the NBCUniversal family, Bevacqua served as CEO at the PGA of America after a long career as head of golf with Creative Artists Agency.
From the U.S. Open to Sunday Night Football and everything in between, Bevacqua offers a unique perspective on maximizing the viewer’s sports consumption experience.
