Michael Annecchini ’03
Annecchini is the manager of global partnerships for Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, the organization that owns the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Raptors.
The 2003 class president since graduation, Annecchini has been a member of the Association Day steering committee since 2009. He co-founded the Michael E. Jurist ’03 Memorial Tennis Tournament with former intermediate division head Derek Poon that same year, and he remains involved with its planning and execution. He's also a past member of the reunion planning committee and the Young Alumni Network.
"I’m very honoured to join the Harold A.D. Roberts Circle," says Annecchini. "Starting the Jurist tournament felt like the least I could do in Michael’s memory. More than a decade later, it’s been humbling to see it grow into a staple on the A-Day calendar. In the process, we’ve been able to raise money for our Michael E. Jurist (Class of 2003) Fund, providing financial assistance to deserving students."
One of Annecchini’s nominators shared his appreciation of Annecchini’s contributions, writing, "His generosity of time and patience, his ongoing friendship and sense of duty have never wavered. Mike is the 'face' of the Class of 2003."
