September 9th marks the beginning of the 2015 SFIA Industry Leaders Summit. Executives from all corners of the sports and fitness industries will come together in New Orleans at the historic Waldorf Astoria Hotel to connect over two days of networking opportunities, and seminar talks from notable industry innovators and corporate figures. During this time, SFIA will recognize some of the industry’s best up-and-coming executives that make up the 2015 class of SFIA’s Future Industry Leaders Scholarship program. These executives have displayed a potential to lead the industry forward for years to come through their executive talent, and vision for the future.
SFIAinsider, in collaboration with the SFIA Weekly Newsletter, will be posting profiles of each of the five winners of this year’s competition. Winners will be recognized for their achievement during the summit. This edition highlights USATF’s Associate Director of International Teams, and accomplished US discus thrower, Aretha Thurmond.
