Sean Henry
President/Chief Operating Officer, Alternate Governor

Now entering his fourth season as the President/Chief Operating Officer of the Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Arena, Sean Henry (Twitter: @PREDSident) has brought a unique and aggressive approach to arena booking and operations, ticket and sponsorship sales and government affairs to his position. As President and COO, he is responsible for business operations of the franchise and venue.

Since Henry joined the organization, Bridgestone Arena has enjoyed its most successful seasons to date, highlighted by its first-ever consecutive Top 10 Pollstar year-end rankings. The Nashville Predators’ sales team also had their most successful sales season to date, selling out 20 of 24 home games during the shortened 2012-13 season with a franchise-record 99 percent capacity. In 2012, Henry led a team that was instrumental in securing Bridgestone Arena’s new lease with the city of Nashville, keeping the downtown staple thriving and growing through 2028. As a provision of the new lease, Henry, alongside several other Nashville Predators executives, worked closely with Metro Nashville to bring a new ice rink to Antioch, Tenn. in 2014, with the goal of growing the game of hockey in Middle Tennessee.

Prior to joining the Predators, Henry spent 11 years with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Palace Sports and Entertainment, serving as their Executive Vice President and COO. While overseeing business operations for the Lightning, St. Pete Times Forum and Single-A baseball’s Asheville Tourists. During this time, the company saw dramatic increases in all revenue areas. The St. Pete Times Forum became one of the busiest venues in the country, built around a Stanley Cup Championship in 2004.

Henry’s two years prior to his stay in Tampa were spent as Vice President of Sales and Marketing with Unity Motion, the first company to deliver High Definition television systems to the residential market and the first to broadcast a live HD program across the United States and the first live sporting event in HD.

The Long Island native started working at the tender age of three, helping his father on construction sites. Henry was charged with the largest of tasks – from picking up nails to watching cement cure, he did it all. Henry then entered the sports and entertainment industry in 1983 when he joined Volume Services Inc., as a busboy and would serve in various building management roles with the company through 1997. In his time with Volume Services, Henry’s clients included the Detroit Pistons,  St. Louis Rams and  Washington Redskins.

The second biggest trophy with Henry’s name on it is the fourth place hardware he won for the West Islip Westbrook Elementary School’s Bowling Winter Classic in 1977. This winning foundation has him well prepared and excited for the Annual Preds& Pins tournament where he looks to build upon that legacy of bowling mediocrity.

Henry, a graduate of The State University of New York, married Tracey Manning, a.k.a. the Suburban Diva, 22 years ago. They have four children – sons Steven and Matthew, and daughters Amy and Jessica.

Henry serves on the boards of The Nashville Predators Foundation, The Nashville Downtown Partnership, The Nashville Sports Council, Rocketown and The Sports Fund. He and Tracey are also very involved in their children’s schools, sports teams and clubs.
