(STEVENS POINT, Wis.) – The United States Curling Association is proud to announce the hiring of Ron Rossi (Lake Placid, N.Y.) as controller and Heather Houck (Stevens Point, Wis.) as bookkeeper/office manager at its national office in Stevens Point, Wis.
*** and ***
Rossi helped guide USA Luge from a sports organization with little international success to one boasting five Olympic medals to date. With a strong background in managing the business side of a sports organization, Rossi’s experience will help strengthen the national office’s management team. A graduate of Manhattan College with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, Rossi also served as CEO of the United States Luge Foundation, Inc. A native of New York, Rossi and his wife, Susan – who was a member of the 1984 Canadian Olympic team – have two children. Rossi will work remotely from his home in Lake Placid.
“I am looking forward to attacking the challenges that will come with this new role, but more importantly, I hope that I can put my prior experiences in the Olympic Movement to good use to help the organization with its efforts to win Olympic medals,” Rossi said. “I appreciate the confidence Rick has shown in me for not only the job to be done, but also for allowing me to work remotely from my home in Lake Placid.”
