A new Director of Business Operations was hired by the Swift Current Broncos yesterday.

Heading the off-ice team for the Broncos is Nathan MacDonald, who spent the last seven years with the Calgary branch of Crowe MacKay LLP.

MacDonald also recently completed the MBA in Hockey Management program through Athabasca University.

In a release from the Broncos, board chair Trent McCleary spoke on what stood out about MacDonald to the organization during the recruitment and hiring processes.

“The Broncos Personnel Committee were very impressed with Nathan’s resume and his attention to detail during the recruitment process. His business acumen and his previous work experience will be a very valuable assets going forward,” said McCleary. “Nathan’s skill sets and his enthusiasm will help him lead our off ice team. We are excited for Nathan to build on the previous successes that we’ve had on the business side of the Bronco organization and also to create and develop new ideas.”

MacDonald's start date is August 15, as he looks to takes over the reins from Diane Sletten, who was the Broncos Director of Business Operations for the past six years.
