U.S. Ski & Snowboard CEO Tiger Shaw to Step Down March 2022

Leslie Thatcher

Park City-based U.S. Ski & Snowboard has begun a nationwide search for its next CEO after Tiger Shaw announced he will be stepping down from the role next year.


U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced on Wednesday that Shaw, who has led the organization since 2014, will be stepping down after the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China.


According to a press release by the organization, after departing as CEO on March 1st of next year, Shaw will then become CEO Emeritus and a member of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Foundation’s board of trustees. Shaw will then focus on fundraising and issues like athlete funding, something that has been a priority for the organization during his tenure as CEO, with the foundation’s endowment growing by $24 million over the last eight years.


The organization won 32 Olympic and 64 World Championship medals during Shaw’s time as CEO.


Of his time at the helm of U.S. Ski & Snowboard, Shaw said:


“I am proud of my accomplishments over the past eight years and our future looks bright. I have a world-class team and know their accomplishments will continue to be amongst the best in the world.”


The organization has already started their search for Shaw’s successor and hopes to have a candidate selected early enough to overlap with his departure.
