Frank H. McCourt Jr. became the fourth owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers after receiving unanimous approval from Major League Baseball on January 29, 2004. Under his stewardship, the Dodgers have reached postseason play three of the past four years and four of the last six seasons.
In 1977, the Boston native founded The McCourt Company (now the McCourt Group), which specializes in the development of major commercial real estate projects. His real estate development roots span five generations, and his family has been associated with many major Boston real estate projects, including the city's Back Bay, Logan Airport, and Boston's waterfront. McCourt earned a reputation as a visionary leader and influential businessman, leaving a positive and lasting impact on the city of Boston and revolutionizing Boston's new Seaport. Today, this booming area boasts a new convention center, hotels, offices, residential buildings and numerous commercial, government and cultural facilities. The McCourt Company moved to Los Angeles in 2006.
McCourt serves on the Board of Directors of Georgetown University, from which he graduated in 1975, and co-chaired Georgetown University's Third Century Campaign (New England Region), which raised more than $1 billion for the university. He is active in an array of educational, trade, civic and charitable organizations, including serving as President of the Dodgers Dream Foundation, and Founding Chairman of ThinkCure!.
He has four sons - Drew, Travis, Casey and Gavin, whom he has often said he hopes will someday take over as stewards of the Dodger franchise.more » « less
