    Default NBL names new Chairman

    Looks like this happened a couple of weeks ago, but didn't see a thread on it:

    The NBL has named experienced executive Graeme Wade as its new chairman.

    Wade is a Melbourne executive best known for his role as the chairman of the CPA Australia board. He has more than 30 years' experience, including in mergers and acquisitions, government advisory and governance.

    Wade will take up the role immediately, with former chairman Nick Marvin, the present Perth Wildcats chief executive, to step down from the role but continue as a board member. He will lead the league's TV broadcast deal negotiations.

    Thoughts? What else do we know about this guy, does he have any sort of sports background?

    I didn't think it was too bad? Kind of like the things he was hinting as far as using his expertise to help all of the clubs be "better run" so to speak. Sounds like careful consideration will be given to the next broadcast deal as well which is a good thing considering some of the duds we've had over time.

    The CPA is great at extracting lots of money out of people without doing much in return, so he's probably perfect for a shitty product like the NBL.
