Molly Hayes
Senior Director of Venues at National Basketball Association (NBA)

Molly Hayes

After graduating from Stanford in 2014, Molly took her ERE problem-solving skills and passion for renewable energy to a less conventional route - sports. She joined the Golden State Warriors organization to help build the Chase Center mixed-use development project, which would become the newest NBA arena located in San Francisco. She worked on entitlements, design coordination, and construction for the Warriors and later for Clark Construction as the general contractor on the project until late 2018 (she debatably was the Warriors' lucky charm as they won the NBA Championship 3x from 2015-2018). Molly then moved to NYC to work for the NBA League office where she has been running the International Venues department for almost 3 years. Her highlights at the NBA have been living in the NBA "Bubble" at Disney last summer, helping to launch the newest professional sports league Basketball Africa League (BAL), and traveling around the world to survey venues. Molly's next adventure begins in November when she will be joining a real estate development company located in San Francisco. In her free time, Molly enjoys road biking, skiing, and attempting to keep her plants alive.
