Commissioner is still a unique leadership position dealing with thousands of student athletes, educational institutions and governing bodies. I truly hope that George Kliavkoff brings more to the position than digital media expertise. How about Kliavkoff leading the conference and contracting media and marketing like the rest of the P5 conferences.
Greg Stankey - SEC
Sankey brings a big picture approach to his position through continuing focus on a vision that positions the SEC to leverage its athletics success and popularity for a greater overall cultural and economic impact on the region, the nation and the world.
During his first major address as Commissioner, he introduced his concept of "Scholars. Champions. Leaders." to describe the ultimate potential of the SEC. "Educating scholars and supporting champions provides the platform for developing leaders who will influence the world," Sankey said in his opening remarks at SEC Football Media Days in 2015.
Bill Warren - Big 10
The overarching mission of the Commissioner is to respect the tradition of the Big Ten Conference, protect the conference, and to positively transform the conference. During his first year of service, Commissioner Warren launched a series of groundbreaking initiatives to address issues associated with mental health and wellness, social justice, voter registration and the international COVID-19 pandemic. These initiatives were imagined and instituted with the legacy of the conferenceís student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans in mind.
Bob Bowlsby - Big 12
Prior to his role at the Big 12, Bowlsby spent six years directing a Stanford University athletics department that sponsors 35 varsity sports and claimed an unprecedented 17 consecutive Learfield Sports Directors Cups, emblematic of the top overall athletics program in the country.
Bowlsby arrived at Stanford after a 15-year stint as the Director of Athletics for the University of Iowa. In his final four years, he guided and supervised the merger of the Hawkeye menís and womenís athletic departments that included 24 varsity sports.
Jim Phillips - ACC
Serving Northwestern student-athletes, staff and the greater Wildcats family for the last 13 years has been the privilege of my professional life,Ē Phillips said in a statement. ďMy career has been dedicated to the development and betterment of student-athletes, and I am thrilled for this once-in-a-lifetime chance to guide one of the most prestigious and accomplished athletic organizations in the world.Ē
Phillips was the first chairman of the NCAAís Division I Council in 2015 and served as the first sitting athletic director on the NCAA Board of Directors and Board of Governors. He is also set to become chairman of the NCAA Division I Menís Basketball Committee for the 2021-22 season.
