Stu Siegel

Hockey TV, Chairman/CEO

Stu Siegel can best be described as a serial entrepreneur. Since 2013, Siegel has combined his lifelong passion for hockey and his successful technology career into a start-up called HockeyTech. HockeyTech has quickly become the worldwide leader in providing cutting-edge technology, digital, video, and analytics services to the hockey world, counting nearly every elite hockey organization in North America as a customer. HockeyTech has accelerated its growth through six company acquisitions to date.

Prior to founding HockeyTech, Siegel spent his career starting, acquiring, merging, and selling a string of successful technology businesses. Following his lifelong passion for hockey, in 2008 he diverted from his technology roots to become an owner and soon after, the CEO/managing partner of the NHL Florida Panthers, selling his interest in 2012 after leading efforts to turn the organization around for its first playoff appearance in over a decade. Previously he had served as CEO in building and selling three multi-million dollar technology/information companies – eNeighborhoods, iPlace (, and Getko Group.

After selling his first company in 1995, Siegel formed and endowed the jStu Siegel Foundation as a vehicle to pursue philanthropic interests. The foundation has supported varied causes in health, education, community, and the arts. Siegel has served on several philanthropic boards, including being chairman of the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Siegel is a cum laude graduate of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, where he played on the Penn Hockey team all four years and currently serves as the chairman of the Penn Hockey Alumni Board.
