Maureen Bausch will be at center stage in 2017 as she leads the effort to get the Twin Cities ready to host Super Bowl LII on February 4, 2018. Her work extends beyond providing a good gameday experience at U.S. Bank Stadium; she’s also responsible for planning and executing a full week of activities that precede the big game. Committee co-chairs Doug Baker, Richard Davis and Marilyn Carlson Nelson selected Bausch for this post in 2014 based on her work at Mall of America. She joined MOA in 1990 and rose to executive vice president. Now she’s using her branding and marketing savvy to leave a lasting impression long after the game is over.
