Cynthia “Cynt” Marshall was recently named Interim CEO of the Dallas Mavericks. She replaces Terdema Ussery amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
In a recent press conference aside Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Marshall is quoted as saying, “The process failed somewhere. I don’t know why it failed. And so that’s what we have to dig out. So I will be meeting one-on-one every single employee of the organization. I’m calling it my own `March Madness.”‘
“Leadership at AT&T suggested her name to us and basically conveyed to us that their most devastating day at AT&T was when Cynt left,” Cuban said of Marshall joining the Mavs. “That and confirmation from untold number of people was all the confirmation I needed to hear.”
A 2017 Network Journal 25 Influential Black Women in Business honoree, Marshall holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and Human Resources Management from University of California, Berkeley.
