"There are few in this business who understand the business and have been around the business as long as Brad Mayne. He is respected by everyone and has "paid his dues" working smaller venues around the country. Brad is someone who truly loves what he does and he has a kind of gentle way about him that his employees clearly respect. At the same time, he now runs one of the largest buildings in the country, MetLife Stadium, home of the Super Bowl in 2014. " -- Bill Dorsey, Chairman, ALSD
