Steve Hogan Recognized Among Orlando Business Journal’s CEOs Of The Year
Florida Citrus Sports Chief Executive Officer Steve Hogan was recently named as one of Orlando Business Journal’s “CEO of the Year” honorees. He is one of 30 Central Florida CEOs recognized by the publication at an October 10 awards luncheon and the accompanying issue of the newspaper.
Hogan has served FCSports for more than 10 years in a leadership role, currently overseeing every aspect of the organization. Among his most notable accomplishments was the successful negotiation of new lease terms with the City of Orlando that committed more than $6 million dollars to the Citrus Bowl renovation and secured the right for Florida Citrus Sports to sell sponsorship assets for the reconstructed stadium.
In addition to facilitating stadium reconstruction and bowl game conference negotiations, Hogan is dedicated to guiding the charitable direction of the Florida Citrus Sports Foundation, which focuses on projects benefiting Orlando youth and their education. Recently, Hogan has guided FCSports’ focus toward creating programs that directly benefit the neighborhoods surrounding the Citrus Bowl in an effort to combat local poverty while spurring future community improvement plans.
A Chicago native, Hogan graduated with a bachelors of arts in advertising and public relations from University of Central Florida in 1991. He was named FCSports Executive Director (later changed to CEO) in 2006 as the successor to Tom Mickle following Mickle’s passing. Before working at FCSports in 1995, he spent time at both McCaw Communications and the New York Times Newspaper Group. In fall 2012, Hogan and his wife, Angie, welcomed their first son, Anderson.
In addition to Hogan, FCSports members Harvey Massey, Alex Martins, Elizabeth Dvorak and James Ferber are among the list of honorees.
