USA Synchro has named Kevin Warner as its new executive director. Warner, USA Synchro’s education director since 2007, has been the organization’s chief operations officer and transition director for the past five months. USA Synchro is the Indianapolis-based national governing body for the sport of synchronized swimming.

“I have had the privilege to work with a lot of great people since my initial hiring at USA Synchro, and I am truly honored to continue this endeavor, striving to meet and exceed the goals of the organization,” Warner said. “It is my pleasure to be one of the pieces that will carry on the great tradition of USA Synchro.”

As chief operating officer since October, Warner managed the day-to-day operations of the national office and enhanced and secured relationships with current and potential sponsors. As interim national team director from March 2012 to March 2013, he was responsible for the national team’s budget and coordinated and organized all aspects of the elite athlete program. As education director, Warner organized USA Synchro’s educational curriculum and coordinated the certification process for coaches and judges. During his tenure, Warner implemented a new talent identification/national team pipeline program and coordinated the annual Coaches College.

Before his tenure with USA Synchro, Warner was manager of operations/customer service at Lifetime Fitness in Indianapolis and a sales executive at Sigma Communications, also in Indianapolis.
