SAN ANTONIO — One of San Antonio's own is joining the Spurs' investor group.
The Spurs announced that Kimberly Lewis, founder of investment management company KSL Resources, LLC, joined the Spurs investor group as a strategic partner. The transaction has closed and been approved by the NBA Board of Governors.
“We are excited to welcome one of San Antonio’s own to the Spurs investor group," said Peter J. Holt, SS&E managing partner said in a statement.

We look forward to learning from her as we strive to strengthen our organization and embark on our shared mission of enhancing community impact.
