Shane Battier

|2012 + 2013 NBA Champion, Miami Heat

As an All-American, champion, scholar-athlete, and high-performing executive, Shane Battier is renowned for his unique use of data and analytics to pinpoint optimal strengths and weaknesses to help teams of all kinds reach their full potential. He has deployed this extensive understanding of analytics in a drive for success in his former role as Vice President of Analytics and Basketball Development for the Miami Heat and to power efficiency and efficacy as a board member for a diverse range of organizations — including YEXT, the BOA Acquisition Company, the Center for Ethics and Leadership at Duke University's Fuqua School (COLE), the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), and several others. Battier is highly regarded as a pioneering voice in how organizations can better incorporate analytics and data into their protocols and company cultures to reach the highest ranks of achievement. He made his mark on professional basketball as the first player in NBA history to combine groundbreaking analytic thinking with traditional basketball philosophies at an elite level, as a key member on championship teams both at the professional (Miami Heat 2012 and 2013) and the collegiate (Duke Blue Devils, 2001) levels. A first-round NBA draft pick (6th overall) in 2001, his honors include the NBA All-Defensive Second Team (2008 and 2009), the NBA Teammate of the Year (2014), and the NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player, First-Team All-American spot, the consensus National Player of the Year, Academic All-American of the Year, and John Wooden Award and Naismith Award (all in 2001). Battier was inducted into the Academic All-America Hall of Fame (2015) and the College Basketball Hall of Fame (2019). Battier is also the founder of the Take Charge Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to providing resources for the development and education of underserved youth and teens.
