COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Triathlon today announced that it has enlisted the services of Nolan Partners, a leader in retained executive searches for the sports industry, to facilitate the identification and selection process for a new Chief Executive Officer.
“We’re extremely proud of our accomplishments over the last several years, including our first-ever Olympic gold medal by Gwen Jorgensen, and the amazing performances by our Paralympians, in Rio de Janeiro. These were shining moments for our country and our sport,” said Barry Siff, USA Triathlon President. “We now aspire to continue that legacy of high achievement, as well as so many other positives, while significantly growing this great sport.”
USA Triathlon’s mission is to grow, inspire and support the triathlon community. The Board of Directors recently completed a multi-year strategic plan that emphasizes the following areas:
1) Participation and Membership Growth
2) Marketing & Brand That Inspire
3) Constituent Engagement
4) Culture of Excellence
“Our next CEO has an exciting task in front of her or him. For example, our membership growth strategy includes increasing the number of women and youth partaking in events nationwide. And while USA Triathlon has long been associated with Olympic-distance racing, and IRONMAN is certainly an iconic brand in triathlon, this sport is also about sprint-distance and short-course racing, and emphasizing inclusivity and fun! Triathlons can, and should, be approachable and achievable by anyone.”
USA Triathlon seeks a strong business leader with a proven background of driving engagement, affinity and successful brand building. Innovation, strategic leadership, and expertise in digital and consumer marketing will reflect the ideal candidate.
