Brian Roberts

In Their Own Words

Roberts-Brian

Squash: 11th, 12th, 15th, 17th & 18th Maccabiah

Brian first competed in the Maccabiah Games as a young college graduate, with his family cheering him on.  He participated a second time and brought his then girlfriend Aileen, to whom he proposed after the Games.  When he competed for a third time as an open athlete, he was able to bring his young family with him and had the pleasure of having his children watch him compete.

 

Brian has had the opportunity to come back twice as a Masters athlete, each time joined by one of his daughters as a member of the Open and Juniors Squash Team.  Each of his Maccabiah experiences has had a different, unique element to them, but each has provided a connection to his Jewish faith and to the people of Israel.  He has won multiple medals, but what he cherishes most is the friendships he has made and being part of the Maccabi family.

Brian is the Chairman and CEO of Comcast Corporation, has won numerous business honors and awards for his leadership and was inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.

Brian and Aileen live in Philadelphia, PA with their three children.
