USA Swimming has named a new CEO and President to replace its former leader who passed on after a long cancer illness. The current Rapids president, Tim Hinchey, has been chosen to take over the office. The job will offer Mr. Hinchey an opportunity to be closer to his swimming passion while discharging his professional responsibilities. He has been a manager in professional sports for about two decades and was made the MLS executive of the year in 2016. Despite being a former administrator of the NBA, NHL, and the English Premier Leagues, Tim describes his new appointment as his dream job. He was part of the swimming team at the University of California-Irvine during his days in college.
Hinchey said that he didn’t believe that he would ever be offered such a high rank in the swimming sector. He even thought that it was a joke when the recruitment company called him. Tim is a hard working individual and has dedicated a lot of efforts to ensure the success of Rapids. He has devoted himself to making it a professional sports club and has worked with it in the good and bad years. Hinchey said that he could not turn down the new job offer since he has been longing for such a position throughout his career. The former president of USA Swimming was Chuck Wielgus, and he had held the position for about two decades before his demise in April. USA Swimming’s main offices are located in Colorado Springs. It is regarded as one of the highly performing management bodies in the U.S. Olympic family.
Tim has had various roles that have been focused on recruitment and training of athletes. He will be the joining US Swimming on July 1 and believes that Rapids will remain under an able management. Hinchey has been working for the soccer club since 2011 when he was offered the chief marketing officer’s position. Rapids have gained massive support from the Colorado community.
