Who We Are McCourt Global (MG) is a private family company focused on building for tomorrow through its work across real estate, sports & media, technology, finance, and social impact. Led by founder and Executive Chairman Frank McCourt, a civic entrepreneur and fifth-generation builder, and an international leadership team, MG extends the McCourt family’s 130-year legacy of developing infrastructure and merging community and social impact with financial results — an approach that began when the original McCourt company was launched in Boston in 1893.

Our organization and businesses represent a diversity of backgrounds, industries, and geographies united by a common purpose: to extend the McCourt family’s track record of building and supporting solutions for a better tomorrow, while also creating positive social impact.

At MG, We value entrepreneurship to push new boundaries; adaptability to grow and evolve; boldness to think outside the box; humility to learn from both triumph and failure; a focus on results to drive success in the face of challenges; and generosity to support our people, partners and communities.

These values inspire our commitment to the high road and the long view. They challenge us to think creatively and work collaboratively. And they guide us in our efforts to build a better business, a better world, and a better future.
