Meet Mrs. Kristin Dolan; she is the loving, caring and gorgeous wife of James Dolan. He is the CEO of Cablevision, Executive Chairman of The Madison Square Garden Company, Executive Chairman at MSG Networks. He oversees all day-to-day operations of the New York Rangers (NHL), NY Knicks (NBA) and the New York Liberty team (WNBA).
Kristen Aigner Dolan, 48, has been working at Cablevision for over 22 years. She met James Dolan, owner of Cablevision and the New York Knicks while working there. They got married in 2002, at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach. From there, they went on to live at a sprawling estate in Oyster Bay, Long Island with his four sons from his first marriage. They have two children together. Kristin has described herself as a “type A mom” on “b’berry”.
In November 2012, Mrs. Dolan became senior executive vice president of product management and marketing; giving her oversight of two departments previously run separately by now-departed managers. Her promotion has to do with her vision for the cable industry, and not being the “boss’ wife. She wanted to make their brand more of a friendlier corporate brand and get customers to actually like a cable company!
At the time, Dolan said
“I didn’t promote my wife; I married an incredible executive. We’re great friends, but we’re figuring things out.”
They had recently announced a trial separation. In a statement released to the press, they said, “We have been in a trial separation since the holidays. It is entirely amicable, and we ask that people respect our privacy at this time.” Since then no word has come out on their marital status.
