OWNERSHIP 2017-18 SCW MEDIA GUIDE

Joe Lacob

Owner & CEO

In his role as Owner & CEO, Joe Lacob is the managing member of the
Golden State Warriors’ ownership group. Currently in his eighth year
as Warriors owner, he serves on the NBA Board of Governors and is a
member of the league’s Competition Committee, Planning Committee
and Labor Committee. In 2014-15, Lacob’s fifth season as owner, the
Warriors posted a then-franchise-record 67 wins during the regular
season and captured the team’s first NBA Championship in 40 years.
This marked the first time in 20 years, since the Houston Rockets in
1994 & 1995, that an ownership group had captured an NBA title within
its first five years after taking control of the franchise. The championship campaign tipped off the most successful three-year
run in NBA history, as the club amassed an NBA-record 207 regular-season victories from 2014-15 to 2016-17, including the
most wins in a single season in NBA history (73) in 2015-16. The Warriors captured their second NBA Championship in three
years in 2016-17, posting a 16-1 (.941) mark in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, the best single-season winning percentage in NBA
postseason history. The Warriors have made five-straight playoff appearances for the first time since doing so in each of the
NBA’s first six seasons in existence from 1946-47 through 1951-52. In fact,prior to the last five seasons, the club had only
made the playoffs once in the previous 18 years. The franchise’s success in recent years has also extended to the business
side. In 2014 and again in 2016, the Warriors were named “Sports Team of the Year” by the Sports Business Journal/Daily, in
recognition of the organization’s innovative and successful business practices. This marks the first time that any professional
team has won this prestigious sports business award more than once. Additionally, under Lacob’s guidance, the Golden State
Warriors were named the 2016 winner of the Entrepreneurial Company of the Year (ENCORE) Award by the Stanford University
Graduate School of Business in recognition of the organization’s entrepreneurial spirit in redefining sports management,
pioneering the use of sports analytics in the NBA, and adopting new technologies that have transformed the fan experience.
The Warriors are the first sports organization to win the ENCORE Award, which has been presented annually since 1982 to
recognize best in class entrepreneurial companies from around the world, including such recent winners as Google (2004),
Apple (2005), and Amazon (2010). In addition to the Warriors organization-wide honors, Lacob was named the 2016 recipient
of the Sports Executive of the Year award by the Sports Business Journal/Daily. He was also named one of the Bay Area’s Most
Admired CEO’s by the San Francisco Business Times in November of 2015. Since making a then-record-setting bid to purchase
his hometown NBA club – a longtime dream of the Atherton resident – and assuming control of the team on November 12,
2010, Lacob has been the driving force behind many of the creative changes that have transpired with the organization,
including several major announcements, prominent personnel additions and an emphasis on transparency. Additionally,
since its inception in 2012, the revamped Warriors Community Foundation has awarded nearly $4 million in grants – one of the
top figures in the NBA – to local school districts and non-profits serving at-risk and vulnerable students. In October 2015, the
Warriors completed the purchase of 12 acres of land in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood and, in January 2017, broke
ground on Chase Center, the team’s state-of-the-art sports and entertainment complex set to open in fall of 2019. In addition
to making monumental commitments
to the team’s future, Lacob has taken an active role in connecting the current Warriors organization with its rich history. In
2012, Lacob saw to it that one of the most beloved players in franchise history, Chris Mullin, received the honor of having
his #17 jersey raised to the rafters at Oracle Arena, becoming the sixth player in franchise history to have his number retired.
Lacob’s NBA and professional sports experience dates back over two decades, including a five-year tenure as minority owner
of the Boston Celtics, where he served on the basketball committee. He earned an NBA World Championship ring in 2008
with the storied franchise before selling his minority stake to purchase the Warriors. Lacob began his career at Menlo Park,
California, based Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in 1987. Though still a strategic advisor to the firm, he has relinquished
his managing partner role in order to pursue his lifelong goal of owning and operating an NBA team. In his role as a
venture capitalist, he has led investments in over 50 start-up companies across multiple fields in life sciences and medical
technologies, the internet and energy. Lacob earned a Bachelor’s in Biological Sciences from the University of California-Irvine,
a Master’s in Public Health (Epidemiology) from UCLA and an M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He credits
his Master’s degree in Epidemiology (biostatistics) with providing him a background in statistics that helped drive his passion
for sports.

2017-18 SCW MEDIA GUIDE

Peter Guber OWNERSHIP

Owner

Peter Guber, a prominent figure in the entertainment industry for
more than 30 years, is currently in his eighth season as owner of the
Golden State Warriors. As co-managing partner, he and Joe Lacob
were the driving forces behind the current ownership group’s bid
to purchase the Warriors in 2010. In 2015, the Warriors captured
the organization’s first NBA Championship in 40 years, beginning
the most successful three-year run in NBA history that included
an NBA-record 73 wins in 2015-16 and the club’s second title in
three seasons in 2017. Additionally, the Warriors were named “Sports Team of the Year” by the Sports Business Journal/
Daily in 2014 and 2016 in recognition of the organization’s innovative and successful business practices, becoming the
first team to win the prestigious award more than once. Guber brings lifelong experience in sports and location-based
entertainment, recognizing the importance of enhancing every aspect of fan experience. In May 2012, Guber joined
Lacob, then-NBA Commissioner David Stern and San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee in announcing the Warriors’ intention
to build a privately financed sports and entertainment venue in San Francisco. That vision took a giant leap forward in
January 2017 when the Warriors broke ground on Chase Center, the team’s state-of-the-art sports and entertainment
complex in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, which is set to open in fall of 2019. One of the most successful
executives and entrepreneurs in the entertainment and communications industries, Guber’s impressive resume includes

earned more than $3 billion worldwide, while also garnering more than 50 Academy Award nominations. Guber is the
Founder and CEO of Mandalay Entertainment, a visionary multimedia venture spanning movies, TV, sports and digital
media. Mandalay’s feature films include Soul Surfer, The Kids Are All Right, Bernie, Donnie Brasco and Sleepy Hollow,
among many others. Guber is Chairman of Mandalay Sports Media, a partnership with Mike Tollin, Emmy and Peabody
Award-winning film and television producer/director, and CAA Sports, the world’s leading athlete representation
agency. Guber is a full professor at UCLA, teaching at the Anderson School of Management and the School of Theater,
Film, Television and Digital Media. He is a member of the UCLA Foundation Board of Trustees, as well as the winner
of UCLA’s prestigious Service Award for his accomplishments in association with the school. Guber is the founding
member of the Board of Advisors for the Center for Managing Enterprises in Media, Entertainment & Sports (MEMES)
at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. Guber served as the co-host of the critically acclaimed television show,
Shootout, for six years on American Movie Classics cable network. AMC moved Guber’s talents to prime time with Story
Makers, a series of one hour specials on the cable network. Guber was most recently seen on Starz/Encore as co-
host of In the House, a weekly news and interview show focusing on industry trends in pop culture. He can currently
be seen as an Entertainment and Media Analyst on Fox Business News.A noted author, Guber’s third book, Tell To Win –
Connect, Persuade, and Triumph with the Hidden Power of Story, was published by Crown Business on March 1, 2011,
and became an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. Fortune magazine chose Tell To Win as one of its “5 Business Books
You Can Really Use” and Hudson Booksellers, retail book stores in airports throughout North America, chose Tell To Win
as one of the “5 Best Business Books of the Year.”s Tell to Win is in its 13th printing. Guber was recruited by Columbia
Pictures out of NYU’s Graduate School of Business, where he was pursuing an MBA. He holds a BA, Master of Law and
Juris Doctorate degrees. He received his honorary doctorate in Fine Arts from the University of Connecticut; was named
Albert Gallatin Fellow at New York University; is a recipient of Syracuse University’s George Arents Pioneer Award, the

One of the most respected business executives in the NBA—with over
40 years of experience in the league—Rick Welts is currently in his
seventh season as president and chief operating officer of the Golden

Joe Lacob and Peter Guber. In this role, he oversees all business-related

Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood that broke ground in January
2017. He owns the rare distinction of being part of championship
teams in the NBA (3), WNBA (2) and NBA G League (1). Under Welts’ direction, the organization has established several
franchise benchmarks from a business standpoint in recent years, as the Warriors brand continues to grow in stature following
three consecutive NBA Finals appearances and a pair of NBA championships in 2014-15 and 2016-17. The organization has
won numerous awards across all facets of the business in recent years, including the Warriors being named ͞Sports Team of
the Year͟ across all sports in both 2014 and 2016 by the Sports Business Journal/Daily. The Warriors are the first professional
team to win this coveted award twice. Welts, 64, owns an impressive and all-encompassing résumé that includes a myriad

operations for the Suns, while also overseeing the team’s interest in the management of the US Airways Center and the WNBA’s
Phoenix Mercury. Prior to joining the Suns, Welts enjoyed a successful 17-year (1982-1999) stint at the NBA league office in
New York, where he ascended through the ranks to eventually become the league’s third-in-command as the executive vice
president, chief marketing officer and president of NBA Properties. In addition to his overall contributions to the revitalization
of the league’s image and popularity, his notable accomplishments at the NBA include the creation of NBA All-Star Weekend
in 1984 along with the marketing program for USA Basketball for the 1992 Olympic ͞Dream Team.͟ Along with Val Ackerman,
Welts was named ͞Marketer of the Year͟ by Brandweek in 1998 for his role in launching the WNBA. During his time at the NBA
office, he supervised a wide-range of departments, including corporate sponsorship and media sales, consumer products,
international business activities, media relations, community relations, team services, special events and creative services.
Welts also played a prominent role in the organization of preseason games in international cities and the eventual opening of
international NBA offices in Australia, Asia, Europe, Mexico and Canada. A native of Seattle, Washington, Welts began his NBA
career in 1969, at the age of 16, as a ball boy with the Seattle SuperSonics. He spent 10 years with his hometown team serving
a number of roles, including as the team’s director of public relations during back-to-back appearances in the NBA Finals
(1978 and 1979) and the SuperSonics’ lone NBA Championship in 1979. In 2006, he was the recipient of the annual Splaver/
McHugh ͞Tribute to Excellence Award,͟ which is given annually by the NBA Public Relations Directors’ Association to a current

executive in men’s professional team sports to publicly acknowledge he is gay. He was presented with a United States Tennis
Association 2011 ICON Award at the US Open in New York City, an award that recognizes and celebrates those who have had
a positive impact on diversity and inclusion in the sports industry and society. Also in 2011, he was honored with GLSEN’s
(Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) Respect Award, which honors those who have made a difference in the areas
of diversity and inclusion. In September 2014, he was honored by GLAAD, the nation’s LGBT media advocacy organization,
with the Davidson/Valentini Award, which is presented to an LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference
in promoting equality for the LGBT community. He also served as the celebrity Grand Marshall of San Francisco’s Pride
Parade in 2015. In 2016 he was honored by the Anti-DefamationLeague with its ͞Torch of Liberty Award.͟ A member of Delta
