Promotion for MLSE Chairman

Job Promotion for Tanenbaum

MLSE’s Larry Tanenbaum Elected NBA’s Board of Governors Chairman

It’s been a busy day for one of Canada’s biggest businessmen.

If you can believe it, even the chairman of one of the biggest companies in the world received a promotion.

Toronto Raptors governor and longtime MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum was elected chairman of the NBA Board of Governors on Thursday, becoming the first Canadian ever to serve the position.

“It is a great honour to have been elected as chairman of the NBA Board of Governors, for both myself and the Toronto Raptors franchise,” said Tanenbaum. “I look forward to working closely with commissioner (Adam) Silver, the league office and my fellow owners in this capacity to grow the game around the world and continually look for opportunities to better this great league for our teams, our players and our fans.”

No stranger to the sporting world, the Toronto-native’s multi-billion dollar company also owns the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs, the Leafs’ minors affiliate the Toronto Marlies, as well as the MLS’s Toronto FC.

“Larry’s passion for the sport, years of influence in the NBA and other professional leagues, and respect and support from his fellow governors will make him an ideal chairman of the Board of Governors to help lead continued growth for our league,” said Raptors president Masai Ujiri.

“Larry’s incredible support of the Raptors over the years, as well as all of us personally, has meant a great deal to us. We are thrilled to see Larry recognized in this way.”

Just another day in the office for the headman of the MLSE.
