The Chicago Bulls announced today that Michael Reinsdorf has been named to the newly created position of President & Chief Operating Officer. In the new position, he will oversee all business operations of the team and report directly to his father, Jerry Reinsdorf.
“Naming Michael President and COO reflects a natural progression of his growing role in the Bulls business organization, and publicly recognizes his contributions to the team,” said Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. “I am proud of his accomplishments with the team, and in his own sports ventures, and believe his knowledge and experience will only strengthen what is an already solid management team.”
Michael Reinsdorf has served as an NBA Alternate Governor for the last three years and has been involved in league matters on behalf of the Bulls since 2001.
“The Bulls winning tradition on and off the court is a part of my DNA,” Michael Reinsdorf said. “I know how much the team means to Chicago, to the NBA, and to fans all over the world. I am looking forward to being a more active, daily participant.”
