Ted Leonsis

“I’m in the business of making lifelong memories. The social responsibility of the positive bonding memories between fathers and sons and mothers and daughters and friends and communities is enormous. I view what I do with stewarding and owning the teams as being a second mayor of the city, a much richer, higher calling than just wins and losses or ratings points of the number of tickets you sell.”

A gifted entrepreneur, Theodore John Leonsis has played a pioneering role in opening up the Internet to the American public by recognizing the interface between technology, entertainment, and communication. He is the founder of Monumental Sports & Entertainment, which owns the Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics, and Verizon Center.
