With mixed emotions, the Endeavor Detroit team is saying goodbye to our long-time colleague and friend who brought distinctive insight and energy to our team. Leaving after four years of exemplary service, Pete Benedetto will join Endeavor’s international expansion team in New York.

We wish Pete the best of luck in his new role and are proud a native Detroiter will continue to represent Endeavor across the globe.
