GAME PLAN PLAYERS: Tamika Tremaglio

Last Updated: November 14, 2023
As we gear up for CNBC x Boardroom’s Game Plan conference this summer, let’s learn more about one of the event’s key participants, Tamika Tremaglio.

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 Tamika Tremaglio, Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA). Click here to view the full list of CNBC x Boardroom Game Plan speakers.

Tamika Tremaglio is widely known for her coaching acumen. Prior to her tenure as the Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association, Tremaglio was deeply respected for her management during her extended time at Deloitte. There, she oversaw 14,000 individuals in 23 different offices around the globe and was recognized with the 2020 Triple-Impact Executive Award from the Positive Coaching Alliance for her professional, community, and educational work.

Her move to the NBPA allowed her to focus on a smaller team, but the impact of her work has been outsized in a short amount of time. Her past experiences working closely with professional sports leagues and teams prepared her to lead the union representing NBA players, taking the baton from Michele Roberts in 2022.

As part of her current position, she ensures that players are adequately compensated and well taken care of during their playing careers and beyond. This spring, she passed her first major milestone as the NBPA negotiated its next collective bargaining agreement, which begins in July.
