The Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame has added two individuals to its Board of Trustees.
Pete Blieberg and Stephen Costello assumed positions on the board under Chris R. Vaccaro, the new Executive Director of the Hall.
“I’m overly excited to work with both Pete and Stephen as we aim at taking the Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame to new heights,” said Vaccaro. “They have long and storied careers in sports and are key players in the county. They will be huge assets and I’m happy to have them aboard.”
Blieberg, a former longtime athletic director at Sachem, East Islip and Kings Park, is currently Assistant Executive Director of Section XI. Blieberg was honored as an inductee of the Hall in 2017.
“It is truly an honor and pleasure to serve on the Hall of Fame executive board,” said Blieberg. “I have the utmost respect for the Hall and the people who have served in this capacity in the past. The Hall of Fame strives to honor those who have excelled on the athletic landscape in Suffolk County and I hope to help continue this great tradition.”
Costello has had a long and successful career in sports and business. A former senior executive at P.C. Richard and Sons, he most recently was an executive with the Omnicom group where he helped lead Steiner Sports.
“It is with great enthusiasm that I join the board of the Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame,” said Costello. “I hope to help shine the spotlight on the nationwide successes of our Suffolk County sports heroes, and help educate our youth on the history of both amateur and professional sports triumphs that occurred in our great county.”
Remaining on the board is also Mike Ryan, Mike Lonigro and Lois Malenczak Cloud.
