Mavericks interim CEO: "We will be the standard of inclusion & diversity"

Cynt (short for Cynthia) Marshall made as good of a first impression as you can in her first appearance as interim CEO of the Dallas Mavericks on Monday afternoon.

Marshall, who will likely be named the permanent CEO by around March 12, was named to the position less than a week after Sports Illustrated published a report that described a hostile workplace for women in the Mavericks’ organization.

At the center of the report was former Mavericks president, Terdema Ussery. Ussery, who was accused of making sexually suggestive remarks to several women, was investigated by the team over similar claims in 1998. When contacted by SI, he denied the allegations.
