USA Track & Field Says It Will Continue CEO Search Process
USA Track & Field's BOD announced today it plans to continue its search for a CEO and reiterated that the new CEO will not come from the board member ranks. The organization has been searching for a new CEO since its previous CEO, Doug Logan, was fired last fall. It narrowed a list of more than 100 candidates to 25 and interviewed more than 10 of them earlier this year. The list was trimmed to three finalists several months ago, and CEO Search Committee Chair Steve Miller said the organization hoped to name a new exec by the end of May. But that deadline passed without any announcement being made.
Miller said in a statement, "We have yet to find a situation where all the pieces fit for both the candidate and USATF." He added that at the organization's board meeting this weekend in Eugene, Ore., the board will discuss how it plans to move forward in finding a new leader. USATF COO Mike McNees currently is serving as interim CEO.
