“USS is delighted to have Matt joining our team. His strong background in professional sports combined with his Olympic and National Governing Body experience make him a perfect fit for the Communications Director role with USS,” said Ted Morris, Executive Director of USS. “Matt will be an important part of our Team as we head to the 2018 Olympic Games in Korea.”
“I’m honored to join US Speedskating at this very exciting time for the sport,” Whewell said. “I look forward to getting to know everyone associated with one of the elite National Governing Bodies - the staff, athletes, members, alumni and volunteers. With a very talented team already in place, I can’t wait for us to tell US Speedskating’s story.”
