November 6, 2023

The company said his departure was not caused by any dispute.

CFO Gautam Ranji has resigned from his position at Sphere Entertainment Company, according to a local Las Vegas Review-Journal report. The company posted in an SEC filing that Ranji’s resignation took effect last Friday.

The company appointed him to the position of CFO earlier this year. Prior to that position, Ranji served as the CFO at MSG Sphere in Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. He began that role last year.

The company went on to state in its SEC post that Ranji’s decision to leave the group “was not prompted by a dispute within the company.”

During the last few weeks, Ranji had reposted a Sphere job offer on his social media, the local report said.

He recently shared on his LinkedIn profile, “Heard about the Sphere? Want to help build the next one and work on other sports and entertainment investments? Come join us!”

Sphere’s Controller and Principal Accounting Officer, Greg Brunner, will serve as the company’s Principal Financial Officer.
