The New York Knicks announced today that Glen Grunwald has been named executive vice president and general manager. Grunwald had been serving in this role on an interim basis since July.

“Glen has done a terrific job this season,” Executive Chairman of The Madison Square Garden Company James Dolan said. “He is an intelligent, seasoned executive and we look forward to him continuing in the role of General Manager for many years to come.”

Grunwald joined the Knicks on Sep. 6, 2006 as the team’s senior vice president, basketball operations, following a decade with the Toronto Raptors (1994-2004), including seven seasons as general manager. He has served as New York’s interim general manager since Jul. 1, 2011.

“It has been a great honor to be a part of this storied franchise for the past six seasons,” Grunwald said. “I would like to thank Mr. Dolan for this opportunity and look forward to building on our commitment to give our fans a team that they can be proud of today, and in the future.”
