In line with the implementation of the new Strategic Plan and focus on the future, the Board of US Sailing announced today the departure of Chief Executive Officer, Jack Gierhart. US Sailing will immediately embark on a nationwide search for a new CEO.

In the interim, the US Sailing Board of Directors has appointed members of the Executive Management Team to operate the organization on a daily basis with oversight and consultation by the Board's Executive Committee. The Executive Management Team includes, Chief Financial Officer, Heather Monoson; Chief of Information Technology, Mike Waters; Chief Development Officer, Jill Nosach; Chief Marketing Officer, Peter Glass; and Director of Operations, Lauren Cotta.

The board and staff of US Sailing are confident in our new direction and in our efforts to successfully implement the new Strategic Plan, addressing the three key pillars: Olympic and high-performance success; Member experience and value; and Organizational effectiveness. The organization is excited for the future and well-positioned to begin implementation of the plan in the upcoming months.

Cory Sertl, President of US Sailing, thanked Jack for his contributions to US Sailing: "Jack guided the Association through some challenging times, especially this past year after the pandemic forced US Sailing to pivot to meet the challenges of a new environment. Looking forward, the Association is confident that change will enable us to meet our commitment to excellence."
