Sund, hired on Wednesday, has worked in NBA front offices for more than 30 years, including stints with Milwaukee, Dallas, Detroit and most recently the SuperSonics.
He spent last year as a consultant for the Sonics after serving as the team's general manager since 2001.
The 56-year-old Sund will replace Billy Knight, who announced on May 7 he is resigning after six years with the Hawks.
Sund inherits a team that ended the NBA's longest playoff drought this year by making its first postseason appearance since 1999. The Hawks lost to Boston in seven games in the first round.
