Ex-Giant Beasley Reece to serve as NFL Alumni CEO

NFL Alumni, the organization dedicated to serving former National Football League players, has named a new CEO, it announced recently.

Beasley Reece, a former defensive back for the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1976 to 1984, was named to lead the Mount Laurel-based organization, replacing Elvis Gooden.

“We thank Elvis for his dedicated years of service to our retired players and appreciate his contributions to our national office,” the board of directors said in a prepared statement. “We look forward to continued success under Beasley Reece, who is very familiar with our NFLA on both a local and national level.”

Another former Giant, Bart Oates, will remain president of the organization.

Reece worked as a broadcaster for many years after his career ended, and served as president of the NFLA’s Philadelphia chapter before joining the organization’s executive board.

Gooden was with NFLA since 2013, serving first as chief financial officer and then later as CEO.
