The New York Knicks named Glen Grunwald executive vice president and general manager on Tuesday. He had been serving in that role on an interim basis since July.

"Glen has done a terrific job this season," executive chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company James Dolan said. "He is an intelligent, seasoned executive and we look forward to him continuing in the role of general manager for many years to come."

Grunwald joined the Knicks on September 6, 2006 as the team's senior vice president of basketball operations following a decade with the Toronto Raptors organization. He has served as the interim general manager since July 1, 2011.

"It has been a great honor to be a part of this storied franchise for the past six seasons," Grunwald said. "I would like to thank Mr. Dolan for this opportunity and look forward to building on our commitment to give our fans a team that they can be proud of today, and in the future."

New York is currently 34-30 this season and is in seventh place in the Eastern Conference with two games remaining on its regular season schedule.
