Key Hire


Raptors Name John Wiggins as VP of Organizational Culture & Inclusion

The Toronto Raptors talk the talk and most certainly walk the walk.

Today, the organization announced a key hire when they named former Raptors 905 staffer John Wiggins the team’s first vice-president of organizational culture and inclusion. The team said in a press release that Wiggins “will lead a group drawn from all parts of the organization to address social injustice, inclusion, equity and political reform.”

Wiggins’s role will primarily be to oversee internal team-building and external outreach initiatives in the community.

“For me, change is actionable,” he added. “I don’t want to just say things. They must be doable. I have a position of power, and I want to do powerful things.”

The University of Windsor alum has a diverse resume in the game of basketball. He helped launch the inaugural teams of the National Basketball League of Canada, he coached on the AAU circuit in Florida and was an integral part of the 905’s first championship victory in 2017.

Prior to accepting his new position, Wiggins headed the Raptors’ business operations department.
