INDIANAPOLIS – The USA Track & Field Board of Directors, at its scheduled meeting June 25-26 in Eugene, Ore., will continue to work toward a resolution to its CEO search.
The search for a new CEO began in late 2010 and has been led by the USATF CEO Search Committee and an external, executive search firm. More than 100 candidates were initially identified and screened, with more than 25 being preliminarily interviewed. The search committee in January conducted face-to-face interviews with more than 10 of the top candidates, and three finalists had interviews before the full board earlier this year.
“We have yet to find situation where all the pieces fit for both the candidate and USATF,” said Search Committee Chair Steve Miller. “In Eugene our hope is to determine how we will move forward from a leadership perspective through the London 2012 Olympics.”
The Board in December issued a job description and profile
of the ideal candidate.
At the outset of the process, the board announced that no board members were candidates for the position. That remains the case as the process enters its final stages.
Since the departure of previous CEO Doug Logan in September, USATF Chief Operating Officer Mike McNees has served as Interim CEO.
