Susan Williamson is currently the Senior Vice President in Business Operation at Harris Blitzer
Sports & Entertainment (HBSE). She works with the 76ers, Devils, minor league teams and other

and prior to that, she worked with the NY Knicks basketball team for 10 years. She is a native New Yorker who grew up on the Upper East Side and attended Stuyvesant High School in downtown Manhattan.
