    Big change in the Bucks' front office. Ron Walter, Sen. Kohl's most trusted aide, is stepping down.
    Took long enough. Plenty more need the boot.

    As expected, VP Ron Walter is leaving Bucks. Is another long-time Herb Kohl crony, CFO Mike Burr, next?

    I am encouraged that the new owners were able to recognize the problems and redundancies within the organization so quickly.

    Pretty much all their decisions have been spot on at this point, except keeping Drew.

    I'm a fan of Herb Kohl as a person, but you can definitely notice the difference between having accomplished businessmen as owners as opposed to a politician.

    Just as the new Milwaukee Bucks are taking shape on the basketball floor, so, too, is the makeup of the franchise's front office.

    The Bucks and new owners Wes Edens and Marc Lasry announced Monday they had retained longtime team executive John Steinmiller but will have him take on a new role. In addition, they announced the appointment of two new executives.

    Steinmiller, soon to enter his 45th year with the team and an executive with strong connections to a number of Milwaukee business leaders and institutions, was appointed to a new job as executive vice president of community affairs and social responsibility.

    The franchise said it was the first time it had appointed an executive devoted completely to making the team a partner in the Milwaukee community.

    Steinmiller, who previously held the title of executive vice president of business operations, sits on a number of boards and organizations and will serve as a link between community leaders and Lasry and Edens.

    "John Steinmiller has been a part of this team's fabric since the very beginning, and I can think of no better person to solidify this team's bond with the city than a man who has dedicated his entire career to improving the team and the community in which it exists," Edens said in a statement.

    In addition, Lasry and Edens announced that Patrick McDonough has been named chief financial officer and Bob Cook has been hired as vice president of business affairs.

    Added Lasry: "We are so excited about how this team is coming together. The Milwaukee Bucks will be one of the best organizations in professional sports on and off the floor. That means recruiting the best talent and making the Bucks integral throughout the community. Bob Cook and Patrick McDonough are incredible additions to the organization."

    McDonough was previously with the sports division of The Madison Square Garden Co., including the last six years as vice president-accounting.

    Cook is a former vice president at HNTB Corp., a national engineering and architecture company. As a HNTB executive, Cook was based in Madison and will be expected to act as a link between the team and state government as the team begins the work of building an arena in the context of a larger economic development in downtown Milwaukee.
