Please attribute to Kerry Perry, president and CEO
“I attended these proceedings to listen to the courageous women as they faced a despicable predator and explained in significant and painful detail the impact he had on each of their lives. Their powerful voices leave an indelible imprint on me and will impact my decisions as president and CEO every day. I am profoundly saddened that a single woman was hurt.

“As stated on my first day on Dec. 1, 2017, I will not waiver on my commitment to remain focused each and every day on our organization’s highest priority - the safety, health and well-being of our athletes and creating a culture that empowers and supports them. My commitment is uncompromising, and it is my hope that everything we do going forward makes this very clear.”
