Co-founder and CEO of Ross' sports firm, which was created to foster innovation within sports, entertainment and technology. The company's goal is to bridge the gap between content and consumers. Relevent Sports has brought international soccer to the United States by showcasing the best clubs in the world at Sun Life Stadium. Higgins has served as press secretary for New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, COO of the agency charged with rebuilding the World Trade Center site, and was the executive vice president of business operations for the New York Jets, and close adviser to owner Woody Johnson before teaming up with Ross.
