“I will manage the day-to-day operations, ensuring that the initiatives we come up with are executed,” said Rowan Barrett.
“I will also have a team working with me and I will be providing Steve Nash with weekly updates so that we are on the same page all the time. My second role as executive vice-president will involve building partnerships and fundraising on the corporate side.”
Barrett is confident that he and Nash can turn the program around. Canada has not won a basketball medal in the Olympics since 1936 when the country won silver in Berlin.
