USOC Hires Chief Communications Officer, But Only Temporarily 

October 14, 2009: The U.S. Olympic Committee, currently in the midst of searching for a new CEO, has filled at least temporarily another position with the hiring of Patrick Sandusky as interim chief communications officer. Sandusky, who had been head of international media relations for Chicago 2016, which had led the efforts to secure host city duties for the Summer Olympics, will begin his tenure at the end of October and remain through the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games in Vancouver.

In a situation that epitomizes the USOC's current executive status, interim CCO Sandusky will report to acting CEO Stephanie Streeter. Lisa Baird is CMO for the USOC.

The USOC is currently searching for a permanent CEO. Streeter took over the duties of CEO in April following the resignation of Jim Scheer, who had been in the position since March 2003, initially as on an interim basis and then in official capacity.

Earlier this month, the International Olympic Committee awarded Rio de Janeiro the Summer 2016 Games; Chicago was eliminated in the first round of voting that included more than 100 IOC members. Tokyo and Madrid were the other two cities in the final voting process.

Prior to his time with, Sandusky joined Chicago 2016 in 2006. Prior to that he was vp of sports marketing for Hill & Knowlton, where he worked with London 2012 in its successful bid to host the next Summer Olympics and also worked on projects related to Wimbledon, World Cup, Rugby World Cup, English Premiership, Nascar and college football for such clients as Gillette, Nestle, Robinsons, Allstate Insurance, Gatorade and Chelsea Football Club.

"We are delighted that a talent of Patrick's caliber is joining the USOC team," Streeter said in a statement. "His many years of experience with the Olympic Family through the London and Chicago bids, with sponsors of international sporting events, and his broad media background will be invaluable in assisting the USOC to navigate the challenges and opportunities ahead."
