Sports Business Journal’s cover from the December 10-16 edition.

“When I ask people in the sports business to name the most influential executive, John Skipper’s name always gets mentioned,” said Abraham Madkour, Executive Editor SBJ/Sports Business Daily. “He took over one of the most recognizable American brands a year ago, and ESPN didn’t skip a beat. There is a reason why everyone wants to be like ESPN. Its day-to-day influence on the sports business is without equal.”

Joining Skipper in the SBJ “Top 50″ is ESPN executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Sean Bratches, who is No. 34 on the list.
