The USA Shooting Board of Directors officially accepted the resignation of CEO Keith Enlow earlier this week as he departs for another professional opportunity.

Enlow held the USA Shooting top spot since December 2017 following the retirement of longtime Chief Executive Robert Mitchell. Dave Johnson had served as interim CEO from September 2016 to September 2017 before accepting a coaching position with the U.S. Air Force Academy.

“We are very appreciative of Keith’s dedication, leadership and passion in leading us through a key transitional moment in this organization’s history,” said USA Shooting Chairman Chad Whittenburg. “He fought hard to make sure we were headed in the right direction as an organization and we’re in a much better spot today than we were when he began. Despite his departure, the mission and efforts remain unchanged with 13 months until Tokyo 2020 and we’ll remain focused on supporting our athletes in their quest to achieve their Olympic and Paralympic dreams.”

USA Shooting Board of Directors will conduct their regularly scheduled quarterly meeting Tuesday, June 25 at Fort Benning, GA, as part of the USA Shooting National Championships for Rifle and Pistol. The agenda now includes a leadership transition plan. Longtime sports executive Bob Gambardella was recently hired as Chief of Operations, and all but one current Board member has extensive experience with USA Shooting. The current Board is positioned well during this transition given their strong business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit and athlete-first mentality.

Enlow used his knowledge of the industry to stimulate revenue generation while engaging donors, sponsors and other strategic opportunities.

“I am very thankful for the opportunity that was given to me to help transform USA Shooting, and I am proud of the stability and continuous improvements that were made,” Enlow said. “I have truly enjoyed my time here with our athletes, staff, the USOC, and the Board, and I believe the experience has taught me much about the sport and America’s shooting team. I wish the Team nothing but success in their preparation for Tokyo and beyond. I know they are capable of great things.”

Notably, USA Shooting athletes have earned 14 of the 30 Olympic quotas available. There are two major opportunities left to earn more before Tokyo 2020.
