Alexander Lasry appears to have taken a job in the Bucks' front office, this according to, well...Alexander. The son of Bucks' co-owner Marc Lasry recently updated his LinkedIn profile and added the title of Vice President of Strategy and Operations to his list of work experience. The job just started this month, according to his account.
It's not yet clear exactly what the position's duties entail, though Alexander's MBA from New York University's Stern School of Business and a resume featuring stints at the White House and Goldman Sach would suggest that his role will involve him closely in day-to-day business affairs and of course arena-related issues. Marc Lasry had made no secret of his desire for his son to join the Bucks in some capacity, and it looks like he's convinced him to become part of the team sooner than expected. You may recall the younger Lasry represented the Bucks during the closed-doors portion of the May 20 draft lottery and has accompanied the new owners on multiple trips to Milwaukee over the past few months.
This is the latest move in a busy summer in the Bucks' corporate offices, as Lasry and Wesley Edens added longtime Knicks executive Patrick McDonough as CFO and former HNTB Corp executive Bob Cook as VP of Business Affairs in late July, while longtime Herb Kohl associated Ron Walter and Mike Burr departed. Lasry and Edens also added several local minority investors into their ownership group earlier in July.
