DC’s Tamika Tremaglio has more than a decade working with players’ associations. Now she will be leading one.
Starting in 2022, the longtime Deloitte leader will be the executive director of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), the labor union which represents players for the National Basketball Association (NBA). She will be taking over the role at the end of the year, following the retirement of current executive director Michele Roberts.
Tremaglio will be coming to the position from her role as managing principal of Greater Washington at professional services firm Deloitte, a company she’s been with for the past 11 years. At Deloitte, she was a leader in the company’s consumer products and sports industries arm, and has 15 years of experience working with player associations.
“I’ve worked with some of the brightest business and legal minds in the world,” said Tremaglio in a statement. “I’ve broken barriers, challenged misperceptions, and much like the professional athletes I’ve supported over the years, I have defied the odds. I’m incredibly grateful and passionate about this opportunity to serve the Players and positively contribute to the role that the NBPA will play in the future of basketball, both on and off the court.”
Eric Paterson has been appointed the first executive director of the Virginia Tech National Security Institute, a brand new initiative from the school for research and innovation in national security.

During his time as Hume interim director, Virginia Tech said research spending in the school increased from $13 million to $18 million.
“Building upon the Hume Center trajectory and its successful model of blending research execution, graduate education, and experiential learning, I look forward to steering the Virginia Tech National Security Institute into new areas and fostering partnerships across the entire university,” said Paterson in a statement. “By growing our applied research portfolio that also integrates student learning, this institute will enable Virginia Tech to help solve tomorrow’s national security challenges, and to deliver the workforce of the future.”
