USA Synchro Names New Marketing Director
25 Apr, 2016
USA Synchro announced the addition of Stephanie Isley as the organization's new marketing director.
Isley will be in charge of branding, communication, partnerships, fundraising, membership and events for USA Synchro, the national governing body for U.S. Synchronized Swimming.
"USA Synchro is very excited to have Stephanie on board. I have had the privilege to work with her over the last three years while she was at the USOC," said Myriam Glez, USA Synchro's CEO/High Performance Director. "Having her working with us feels very natural. She is knowledgeable about our organization, our sport and the Olympic Movement. But most of all, she is a fast learner and a hard worker, and I feel she is already up to speed. She is a great addition to our team."
"I'm so pleased to be here with USA Synchro, and I appreciate the confidence placed in me by Myriam and the Board," Isley said. "I look forward to the opportunity to support the athletes, coaches, staff and membership of USA Synchro by helping to further build the sport in the U.S. through partnerships and strengthening its brand."
Isley has been involved in the Olympic Movement since 1998, with her first 10 years focused on anti-doping efforts. As the training & evaluation manager for the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Isley was responsible for performance support programs and recruitment efforts carried out in the U.S. and recognized at international conferences, and she also oversaw the day-to-day activities of the organization's independent contractors.
Before joining USA Synchro, Isley was the sport performance manager for the U.S. Olympic Committee. In that role, she created and managed annual contracts between the USOC and sport organizations, developed and oversaw customized athlete support programs, and collaborated with sports in the development and implementation of long-term plans and selection procedures.
She worked with officials and athletes within the sport of synchronized swimming during her time with the USOC and attended several United States Aquatic Sports (USAS) conventions.
Isley, a University of Colorado graduate, holds a master's degree in science from Regis University.
