America East hires G League executive as commissioner

The America East Conference named Brad Walker as its fifth commissioner on Thursday.

Walker currently is the vice president and head of basketball operations for the NBA G League. He will take over the reins of the 10-team conference on Sept. 13, replacing Amy Huchthausen, who is moving on to a job with a Boston tech firm.

A former college basketball player at Bentley, he has more than 15 years of experience as an NCAA Division I administrator in addition to the G League.

He was associate commissioner and COO of the Ohio Valley Conference from 2007-16, during which time he also served as interim commissioner, before moving on to the G League. He previously served as the associate commissioner of the West Coast Conference.
