USA Triathlon CEO Urbach steps down

Note to Key USA Triathlon Stakeholders
Greetings, I hope this finds you well and enjoying the start of a new season.

As an important stakeholder within the USA Triathlon community and the multisport industry as whole, I wanted to personally make you aware that Rob Urbach has left his position as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately, to pursue other professional opportunities. Under Rob’s leadership, USA Triathlon experienced much success and rolled out several major new initiatives. Please join me in thanking Rob for his contributions to the organization over the past six years, as we wish him all the best in future endeavors.

The Board of Directors is excited to move forward with its newly developed strategic plan. Our focus is on the growth of triathlon in the United States, as well as a dedicated emphasis on our members and key constituent groups that include race directors, coaches, clubs, elite athletes, officials, and our triathlon family partners. We are encouraged by the organization’s overall success, the dedicated USA Triathlon staff, our strong position as innovators within the industry, and the enthusiasm from our hundreds of thousands of triathletes across the United States.

We are now beginning a comprehensive search to identify a new CEO, and you can expect to receive the announcement as soon as a decision has been reached. In the meantime, thank you for all that you do every day to make our sport so great.
