In a statement, Pegula Sports President and CEO Kim Pegula thanked the three individuals for their service.

“Since I assumed the role of President last year, I have been continuously evaluating our organizations. I remain confident in our leaders and in the long-term success of PSE. At the appropriate time I will be looking to fill the positions on a case by case basis as deemed necessary,” Pegula said.

Former President Russ Brandon resigned from the company, which owns the Buffalo Bills and Sabres, last year, reportedly following an investigation into personal misconduct.

In January, Senior Vice President and Harborcenter General Manager Mike Gilbert and Nik Fattey, vice president and director of hockey at Harborcenter, also resigned. The Buffalo News reported those departures came following an internal investigation into allegations of sexual harassment of female employees at a party in December.
