New Warriors Arena: W's Hire Architect Ellen Warner As V.P. Of Development

The Golden State Warriors announced on Friday the hiring of architect Ellen Warner as Vice President of Development for the club, and will oversee the planning, design and construction of the new San Francisco arena according to the Bay Area Sports Guy.

Here is an excerpt from the official press release:

The Golden State Warriors have hired Ellen Warner as Vice President of Development, it was announced today. In this role, she will serve as the development manager for the team's proposed privately financed sports and entertainment complex on Piers 30-32 and Seawall Lot 330 in San Francisco and will oversee planning, design and construction of the project.

"We are thrilled to add Ellen to the Warriors organization in this critical role," said Joe Lacob, the team's Co-Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Her skills and experience make her a perfect choice to lead our project."

A San Francisco resident, Warner has more than three decades of experience successfully managing large and complex real estate projects, with budgets totaling $1 billion, including public buildings, hospitals, medical campuses, and office buildings.

Warner joins Kellie Vugrincic, V.P. of Human Resources, as the only other female with a major role in the organization's braintrust. And with her resume, its just more proof that the Warriors are pulling out all the stops to get this arena built.
