Yannick Colaco will step down as Vice President and Managing Director of NBA India. Colaco has been in his current role since February 2013. NBA Vice President of Global Business Operations Diane Gotua will relocate from New York to NBA’s Mumbai office to lead the business in India on an interim basis and oversee the search for a new Managing Director of the NBA in India.


“The NBA’s popularity and business in India have seen significant growth under Yannick’s leadership over the past six years,” said NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. “We thank Yannick for his contributions during his tenure as Managing Director and are grateful to have Diane assist with the transition.”


Added Colaco: “I am extremely thankful to have played a part in the growth of the NBA in India. From broadening the distribution of our games to our plan to bring the live game experience to fans, the NBA’s business in India has never been better. It has been incredible living and breathing the NBA everyday over the past six years, and I look forward to applying my NBA experience as I move onto my next professional challenge.”
