The National Basketball Association (NBA)’s executive vice-president of team marketing and business operations (TMBO), Chris Granger, has resigned from his position to become the president of NBA team the Sacramento Kings.
Granger, who has been an NBA executive for 14 years, will begin his presidential role from August 1. He will oversee operations and direct the development of a new entertainment and sports complex in downtown Sacramento.
NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver said: “Chris has done an extraordinary job for us, including developing a group of executives that is industry-renowned for assisting teams in growing their businesses. He is known throughout the industry for his innovative approach to sales and marketing, service, and business analytics.”
Amy Brooks, TMBO senior vice-president and an eight-year NBA executive, will succeed Granger as the head of the department, reporting to Silver.
