Robert (Bob) Wetenhall

Bob Wetenhall was born in Milwaukee and educated at Princeton.  Wetenhall made his money in the field of investment banking as a founding partner in McConnell Wetenhall Inc.  Wetenhall purchased the Montreal Alouettes from Jim Speros in 1997, but his interest in football goes back much longer than that.  In the 1960s, Wetenahall was a part owner of the Boston Patriots of the AFL and then the New England Patriots of the NFL when the two leagues merged.  Wetenhall's venture into professional sports also includes a part owner of a North American Soccer League team in the 1970s.  During Wetenhall's ownership, the Alouettes franchise has reached heights of of success unmatched in franchise history, reaching seven Grey Cups in the fourteen seasons between 1997 and 2010. The Alouetttes came away with three championships in 2002, 2009 and 2010. Going hand in hand with the Al's success on the field was success in the stands.  Montreal has had sellout after sellout at home, and Wetenhall headed up the expansion of McGill stadium on the mountain to provide more seats for Al's fans.
