INDIANAPOLIS, May 11, 2015 – USA Gymnastics has named Luan Peszek of Indianapolis as vice president of program development. Peszek will work closely with both the president and chief operating officer to prioritize, identify, create and develop programs to grow the USA Gymnastics disciplines and enhance athlete opportunities.

“Luan is uniquely suited to take on this important role,” said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. “She has extensive knowledge of gymnastics, and I am confident she can help advance initiatives across the sport.”

Peszek will work with each of the disciplines on initiatives that are important to their growth and viability, with the immediate focus on men’s gymnastics, trampoline and tumbling, and acrobatic gymnastics as well as strategies for collegiate gymnastics.

In 1988, Peszek joined USA Gymnastics as the publications director. As her responsibilities evolved, her title became managing director of communications and was most recently vice president of women’s program.
