Editor's note: This story is revised from the print edition.

Former NBA marketing executive Tom Ward has joined IMG College to manage the school and conference properties in the East region.

Ward’s title will be regional vice president, East. Rex Hough, who formerly oversaw the East region for IMG College, has been promoted to a new role in business development and partnership management under senior vice president Hunter Nickell.

Ward last week left the Philadelphia 76ers, where he managed corporate partnerships and broadcasting at the senior vice president level. He also has worked in sales and marketing for the New Orleans Hornets, Charlotte Bobcats and Washington Wizards.

At IMG College, he will oversee multimedia rights at such schools as Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, St. John’s, Syracuse, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
