CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Another key executive of Tepper Sports & Entertainment (TSE) has resigned, a source confirms with WBTV.

Chief Operating Officer Mark Hart resigned on Monday from his position.

TSE is the ownership group created by David Tepper and operates the Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Football Club. Tepper hired Hart when he bought the Panthers in 2018. Hart previously worked with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Linkedin.

Hart is the third high-ranking member of TSE to leave his position this year. The Panthers announced team president Tom Glick was leaving the organization on February 1.

CEO Nick Kelly stepped into Glick’s shoes but the Panthers announced on May 4 that Kelly would be leaving too. That announcement came one day after a WBTV Investigation into the numerous public-private partnerships pursued by TSE that hadn’t led to any results.”

In June, Tepper’s real estate company, GT Real Estate Holdings (GTRE), filed for bankruptcy over the failed Rock Hill headquarters project.

During the bankruptcy hearing in June, contractor Mascaro/Barton Malow (MBM) said Hart and Appaloosa Management members were orchestrating the operations of GTRE.
