Anouk Patty named new U.S. Ski & Snowboard Chief of Sport

PARK CITY, Utah — On Wednesday U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced the appointment of Anouk Patty as its new chief of sport.

Patty is a decorated alpine skier who has also held roles at several blue-chip corporations. Most recently, she was the director of business development and strategic partnerships at Dropbox and has held senior roles at Hewlett-Packard, Intuit, Bain & Company, and J.P. Morgan.

She competed on the U.S. Alpine Ski Team in the 1980s and raced for Dartmouth College, where she was a three-time All-American and won the NCAA Skiing Championship in 1988.

Patty will develop and implement the organization’s athletic strategic plan working with the elite programs and pipeline development in all disciplines across the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboard Team, and U.S. Freeski Team. Patty’s appointment is part of an organizational restructuring for U.S. Ski & Snowboard, designed to enhance athletic performance across each sport at all levels.

She is on the board of Park City-based POWDR, the parent company of U.S. Ski & Snowboard event venues including Woodward Park City and Copper Mountain, and previously sat on the board of Green Mountain Valley School.

She has her MBA from Harvard Business School and an executive education certificate in leadership in innovation from Stanford Business School.

“Anouk’s unique skill set combining business and sport knowledge made her the ideal strategic leader for this role,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard President and CEO Sophie Goldschmidt. “We are thrilled to have her return to her roots to manage the vision and road map for all sports from development to the elite level, as well as optimize success in athlete programs and high performance.”

Patty will work hand-in-hand with Goldschmidt to ensure that the sports are also integrated within the business side of the organization, as well as working closely with all important internal and external stakeholders.

“It is an honor to be joining U.S. Ski & Snowboard as the Chief of Sport,” said Patty. “The organization has a great foundation and I plan to further develop our athlete-centric culture while also emphasizing development in each sport to build an even stronger future. I’m excited to work with Sophie, the sport directors, coaches and athletes to enhance our athletic programs and create a robust talent pipeline that will compete with the world’s best.”

Patty will join the organization in early April.
