Delaware North Chairman Jeremy M. Jacobs, Chairman has a vision than mere profitability. He eyes on the bigger prize, i.e. leaving behind a legacy.
In an interview, Mr. Jacobs said, “We went from a billion to $3 billion very, very quickly and that pace has not changed. We have to learn how to be a bigger company. That’s a whole different management style and a whole different organization when you get to that size. So I really felt we needed to build a very strong group of executives who were capable of managing at a higher level, a higher degree, and where any one of them could be a potential successor to us (the present leadership).”
