  • @NBA Report: WNBA to Hire Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert as President

    NEW YORK -- The WNBA has a new president, a little more than a week before the season starts.

    The league has hired Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the league hasn't publicly announced the hiring.

    Since 2015, Engelbert has been CEO of Deloitte US, an accounting organization that works with Fortune 500 companies.

    She replaces Lisa Borders, who stepped down in October. NBA deputy commissioner Mark Tatum has been the interim president since Borders left.

    It's been an active offseason for the league, which begins its 23rd season on May 24.
