NEW YORK, February 22—Timothy Andree, currently vice president of corporate communications at BASF Corporation, is joining the National Basketball Association as senior vice president of communications. He will be responsible for media relations, public affairs, community relations, marketing communications and international communications efforts.
 
Says NBA commissioner David Stern, “Tim has a wealth of experience in communications management, particularly for global organizations. As the NBA’s business continues to expand, including the WNBA and National Basketball Development League, we are increasingly speaking to diverse audiences, and a communicator and manager with Tim’s proven track record is an enormously valuable addition.”
At BASF, Andree was responsible for directing the advertising, marketing services, public affairs, media relations, employee communications, and community affairs activities for BASF in North America.n Previously, he was vice president and general manager of corporate communications for Canon USA and worked in Japan and New York for Toyota Motor.
 
“Joining the NBA is a dream come true,” says Andree. “It allows me to combine my passion for the game with my skills as a communicator. This is an incredibly exciting time for the NBA and I am looking forward to working with the talented team of people that make up the world’s leading sports marketing organization.”
