PARK CITY, Utah. – Tiger Shaw will leave his post at the helm of U.S. Ski & Snowboard in March 2022, following the Beijing Winter Olympics. He will then become CEO Emeritus and will join the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Foundation Board as a trustee, focusing on priorities including athlete funding, an initiative that has been a central focus during his eight-year tenure.
The board will begin a search for its next CEO immediately.
Shaw joined U.S. Ski & Snowboard in October 2013 and when he steps down will have served through three Olympic Games and 12 World Championships. Shaw led U.S. Ski & Snowboard to 32 Olympic and 64 World Championship medals, representing 60% of the US medals won across all Winter Olympic sports.
He also led efforts to dramatically improve athlete funding, support coach professional development, and improve the athlete experience, thus driving organizational culture initiatives that will have an impact for years to come, the organization said in a statement.
“We have had great leadership under Tiger during his tenure, guiding the organization through both good and difficult times. He leaves a legacy of achievement and change with permanent benefit,” said Board of Directors Chair Kipp Nelson. “While we are saddened by his future departure, we understand his desire to pursue other endeavors and wish him the very best. We are so pleased Tiger will continue his close involvement with U.S. Ski & Snowboard as CEO Emeritus and as a Foundation Trustee undoubtedly championing many of the key initiatives he launched as CEO,” continued Nelson.
“While I look forward to new career challenges, I know I will leave this organization, which I care for so deeply, in great shape with an incredible management team and supportive boards,” said Shaw. “I am excited to manage a seamless transition and to stay very involved as a U.S. Ski & Snowboard Foundation Trustee and CEO Emeritus. I am proud of my accomplishments over the past eight years and our future looks bright. I have a world-class team and know their accomplishments will continue to be amongst the best in the world.”
