Camillo resigns from Flyers/Comcast Spectacor positions

Valerie Camillo

Add another development in the Flyers’ evolving management framework.

Valerie Camillo, president and CEO of Spectacor Sports and Entertainment, will be leaving the organization on July 1.

Camillo, who also has served as a Flyers alternate governor the past five years, has headed up business operations for the Wells Fargo Center as well as the NHL team.

During her term she also oversaw a $350-million interior renovation of the WFC. In addition, she was involved with Comcast Spectacor’s plans to develop the south Philadelphia stadium district.

Prior to coming to Philadelphia, Camillo worked for the Washington Nationals major league baseball team.

Recently, the Flyers have appointed Keith Jones as president of hockey operations and Daniel Briere as general manager. Besides that, Ken Hilferty took over for retiring Dave Scott as team chairman and governor.

Camillo’s move was not something expected. At the press conference announcing the hiring of Jones, she had talked extensively about what her role would be in the new front office, titled “A New Era of Orange.”

Camillo has been involved in a number of community activities, including the Ed Snider Youth Hockey and Education organization.
