Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Atlanta Hawks have named Steve Koonin as the organization's Chief Executive Officer on Monday.

Koonin will oversee all business, financial and strategic operations of the club and Philips Arena. Additionally, Koonin will acquire an equity position within the ownership group.

"Steve Koonin's reputation as a game changer in both marketing and media makes him the ideal leader to usher the Atlanta Hawks into a new era. He has created a legacy as an expert in sports marketing, television, branding and digital media," said Hawks Majority Owner Bruce Levenson.
