As we gear up for CNBC x Boardroom’s Game Plan conference this summer, let’s learn more about one of the event’s featured speakers, Lexie Brown.

In a first-of-its-kind partnership, CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, and Boardroom, Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman’s premier media brand covering the business of sports, music, and entertainment, are teaming up to produce CNBC x Boardroom Game Plan, an all-new, high-powered event taking place on July 25 in Los Angeles. Today, we’re highlighting featured speaker Lexie Brown, Los Angeles Sparks shooting guard. Click here to view the full list of the CNBC x Boardroom Game Plan speakers.

The WNBA remains steadily growing in terms of revenue and viewership, and it’s largely thanks to the talented athletes that take the court each night. Among those etching their names in the women’s basketball history books is Lexie Brown, a guard for the Los Angeles Sparks. At 28, the Boston native is a WNBA champion, Reebok athlete, and an inspiration to young ladies across the country hoping to follow in her footsteps.

Before entering the league, Brown spent her first two years of undergrad playing ball at the University of Maryland, where she not only helped lead the team to two Final Four appearances, but was also named to the ACC All-Freshmen Team and ACC All-Academic Team. Upon transferring to Duke for the remainder of her college career, Brown set an ACC record by making 56 straight free throws.

Now a veteran at the pro level, attendees in Los Angeles will hear from one of the league’s standout athletes. Learn more about Lexie Brown’s Game Plan below.
