Stacey Girard  Managing Director, Business Affairs and Client Strategy

Stacey's Favorite Sports Moment

"One of my favorite sports moments was during the New Jersey Nets 2002 NBA Finals run. Watching Jason Kidd and Reggie Miller battle it out in a double-overtime Nets’ victory in Game 5 of the opening series and sharing in that moment with other Nets staff was truly special."
