USA Volleyball Announcement

USA Volleyball President and CEO Jamie Davis has announced that he will not be renewing his contract with USAV after it expires at the end of the year. He will continue to oversee the organization through the Olympic and Paralympic games and will then serve as an executive consultant to assist the board of directors with a smooth leadership transition. In addition, Davis has agreed to assist the board in the search for his successor.

“I am very proud of what our team has accomplished at USAV since I began in 2017”, said Davis. “USA Volleyball memberships have grown by nearly 30% over that span to 425,000, our teams won three gold medals at the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic games, our women are the reigning beach world champions and the organization is in the healthiest financial situation in its history. I feel that following this Olympic quadrennial it is a good time for another leader to take the reigns and to build on the solid foundation we have created. I would like to thank our dedicated staff, the 40 USA Volleyball regions and our board of directors for all of their hard work and support. Without them, such success could not have been achieved. I look forward to working with the board and our management team to ensure a smooth transition over the remainder of the year.”

Dave Gentile, USAV Board Chair summarized Jamie’s leadership as follows: “Jamie’s departure will surely create a void for USAV, as he has been instrumental in leading the enterprise to new heights and accomplishments during his seven-year tenure. The Board appreciates all he has done for USAV and the Sport of Volleyball. He clearly is leaving the organization in a much better position than when he arrived. For all he has done, the USAV Board is genuinely proud to have collaborated with Jamie these past seven years. We wish him only the best in his new ventures.”
