Greg Bibb - Chief Operating Officer
Greg Bibb is in his third season as the Executive Vice President of Business Operations for the Washington Wizards and recently completed his fifth season at the helm of the Washington Mystics as the team’s Chief Operating Officer. Bibb’s responsibilities with the Wizards include overseeing all business functions for the organization including marketing, communications, community relations, game operations, new media, video production, analytics and the camps & clinics program.
Under Bibb’s leadership, the Wizards brand has been re-engineered and now embraces the red, white and blue color scheme synonymous with Monumental Sports & Entertainment while recalling the classic look of the team’s championship heritage. As part of the Wizards’ new look, Bibb and the team’s business operations group have introduced a family of new marks, new uniforms and a completely redesigned web property. The Wizards brand now connects the team with its proud past while positioning the organization for an exciting future.
Over the past two seasons, Bibb and the Wizards have unveiled the Bullets & Wizards Alumni Association and launched a series of initiatives aimed at making the fan experience at home games second to none, including the “Stand Until We Score” tradition and the “Great Wall of Assists.” Wizards fans have also been introduced to several technological upgrades at Verizon Center including a new digital scorer’s table, a high definition television signal throughout building and a new lighting system that enhances the team’s game presentation.
Those changes are products of the organization’s strategic plan to utilize analytics developed through fan feedback and interaction to improve the customer experience and deliver value to Wizards fans who engage the organization in the arena, online or in the community.
A 15-year veteran of the sports industry, Bibb joined the Mystics in 2007 with experience in all facets of sports management, including ticket sales, corporate sponsorship, communications, marketing and branding. Prior to his arrival in Washington, Bibb spent two years as the President of Hantz Group Sports & Entertainment where he was instrumental in the launch of the Detroit Ignition of the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL). He has also served as the Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Philadelphia KiXX soccer team. Prior to joining the KiXX, Bibb was the Director of Public and Media Relations with the Major Indoor Soccer League.
A native of Hershey, PA, Bibb was named a member of the Washington Business Journal’s 2010 40 Under 40 class. He currently sits on the board of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, the Greater Washington Sports Alliance and Most Valuable Kids, an organization dedicated to providing sports and entertainment experiences for underprivileged and underserved children. Bibb also serves as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Marist College in 1996 and he enjoys logging miles as an avid runner in his spare time. Bibb and his wife, Tara, currently reside in Arlington and are proud parents to daughter, Adelyn, 5, and son, Caden, 2.
