Upon the emergence from bankruptcy, Dennis Hagemann was appointed to the role of President and CEO, and an entirely new Board of Trustees assumed office. Hagemann previously served as an Associate Vice President, overseeing Human Resources Management Development.
During this time, the NBA staff and the newly constituted board worked diligently to implement the reorganization plan and emerge from bankruptcy on solid financial footing. A part of this process was to launch an executive search after an appropriate time of transition.
“We were a prayerful board. We knew that we needed prayer—as much as we needed recommendations, and as much as we needed to trust the process—we knew we needed to be praying people as we went through those days together.” –Rev. Belva Brown Jordan, Former NBA Board Chair
