Dr. Laural Logan-Fain, PhD serves as the Associate Vice President of People Business Partnership for San Antonio Spurs Basketball (Spurs Sports & Entertainment). She also works with leaders as a Facilitator with the University of Texas at San Antonio’s Center for Professional Excellence in the Alvarez College of Business.

Some of Dr. Logan-Fain’s best and earliest memories as a child were spent listening to and reading bedtime stories with her mom—stories that provided her an escape and adventure, boomeranged her to bygone eras, or rocketed her into future lives. Stories and storytelling continue to be an integral part of her personal and professional life, as necessary to her as air, a way to build empathy and gain a deeper understanding of self and others.

Over the past two decades, Dr. Laural Logan-Fain has worked in both corporate and educational environments. Her role with the San Antonio Spurs has allowed her to leverage her love of teaching with her love of leadership and coaching. In 2014, she launched the San Antonio Spurs’ corporate university, which evolved into a community-serving and revenue-based program. In her current role she works alongside leaders as a strategic partner, aligning business objectives with people solutions. She is passionate about serving others in the quiet and chaotic moments of their work-lives—digging deep to understand their stories and discover what they value most.

Dr. Logan-Fain has worked in publishing and research. As a professor, she taught graduate and undergraduate education, research and school law courses at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Our Lady of the Lake University, the University of Houston-Victoria, and the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Dr. Logan-Fain earned her PhD in Educational Administration with a specialization in School Law from the University of Oklahoma (OU) and co-authored two books and multiple articles.

She and her husband met while she was attending graduate school at OU (Boomer Sooner!). He is a graduate of Oklahoma State University and former football player (Go Pokes!). Naturally, when it comes to college football, they are a house divided -- but they are united in family and love! They are also proud parents to their son Joseph, a big-hearted teenager, and to their sassy 4-legged fur baby/rescue dog, CottonBall.
