Cynthia Marshall

CEO, Dallas Mavericks
Change from 2018: Newcomer

Marshall has transformed the Mavericks’ culture after a 2018 investigation brought to light years of sexual harassment and misconduct within the team’s front office. A former AT&T executive, she wasted no time in turning around the organization that now is among the most diverse and inclusive in sports. Today, about 50 percent of the team’s executive staff is made up of women and 47 percent are people of color.
