No. 92: Marc Ganis

At a league meeting recently, Ganis walked by with a gaggle of owners, and one league veteran said, “Look: It’s the 33rd owner.” Ganis, the Chicago-based co-founder of Sportscorp, Ltd., a sports consulting firm, has advised owners on new stadia, international viability and the L.A. market. He’s close with Roger Goodell. Owners use him as a sort of silent-partner sounding board for all business decisions.
