"During his 19 years with the Warriors, he has established a proven track record across several different job functions and, most importantly, has done so in any situation, regardless of the team’s on-court success,"  said Joe Lacob, Warriors Co-Executive Chairman and CEO. "Brandon is one of the bright, young executives in our industry and I anticipate a smooth transition from Rick."
