USA Gymnastics Names CEO

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

The board of directors for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics has appointed Kerry J. Perry president and chief executive officer. Perry, who most recently served as vice president of business development for Learfield Communications Inc. in Missouri, will begin her new role in December.

Perry succeeds Steve Penny, who resigned in March amid allegations of USA Gymnastics' slow reaction to sexual abuse claims from athletes. At that time, the organization said the change in leadership would allow it to "face its current challenges and implement solutions."

Additionally, Perry previously owned KP Sports, where she also served as president, which was acquired by Learfield. USA Gymnastics says Perry will be responsible for the organization's strategic direction involving the day-to-day operations, including safety initiatives, athlete and competitive programs, membership and staffing, among others.

"We are fortunate to have someone as capable and energetic as Kerry step into this leadership role," said Paul Parilla, chairman of the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors, who served as interim CEO following Penny's resignation. "Her passion for the sport, commitment to athlete safety, and track record of motivating teams to succeed will help guide our vision for the future."

Perry will also serve as a representative of USA Gymnastics to the United States Olympic Committee, the international Gymnastics Federation and other organizations.
