Boston Executives Come Together for Second in Business Meet-Up Series

King James wasn’t the only one making the rounds on Friday night at TD Garden.

TD Garden Business Network’s first meet-up of the Celtics’ season took place with business executives joining special guests Celtics President Rich Gotham and C’s legend Jo Jo White for pre-game drinks and apps before Friday’s oh-so-close loss to LeBron James and the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers.

This second in a series of exclusive networking events for Boston area business executives, took place at the third floor LinkedIn lounge area outside of the renovated Legends and Celtics Courtside Club.

It wasn’t all basketball and business talk for attendees. Topics ranged from sharing frustration over Mass Pike traffic to discussing fitness routines. One attendee asked Gotham how he stays fit with the frenetic Celtics business schedule. The answer: he runs to train for triathlons.

“It’s always great when you can get a group of people at a unique event like a game and  incorporate business networking,” said Rich Gotham. “The excitement of a game atmosphere adds another dimension and helps people connect. It’s a good way for business to get done.”

Attendees included executives from numerous high-profile Boston area companies and included TD Garden/Bruins SVP of Marketing and Sales Glen Thornborough and other team/arena staff who stopped by to mingle with the crowd. Business Network members were able to check out which other groups were in attendance through the TD Garden mobile app, available now for iPhone & Android.
