Leave a comment

In this episode of The Mentors Radio, Host Dan Hesse talks with Mark Tatum, Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Tatum oversees the NBA’s global business operations. But Mark didn’t find his ideal career — one he loves — right out of the box. He just never stopped being his best self throughout his career…and his career insights and wisdom is excellent, as you’ll hear. Learn how a young man born in Vietnam during the war to a black serviceman and Chinese mother was educated at Cornell and Harvard – and worked at Procter & Gamble, Clorox and Pepsi, but he found his calling and ideal career in sports management, where he has played a key role in fostering innovation and building the NBA’s global brand. His favorite quote, “Find your passion and pursue your dreams.”
