(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – USA Fencing’s National Events Manager, Kate Drummey (Colorado Springs, Colo.), will be leaving her position in the National Office on May 8 as the Johnstown, Pa. native returns to the East Coast to accept a new role within the Olympic Movement.

Drummey came to USA Fencing from the U.S. Olympic Committee where she worked in the Paralympic department for two years following her graduation from The College of William and Mary in 2010. She joined USA Fencing’s membership department in November of 2011 and later transitioned to her current role in the national events department in 2013.

For the past two seasons, Drummey has worked as USA Fencing’s National Events Manager where she planned and executed USA Fencing’s eight national tournaments that served between 1,000 and 4,000 athletes each. Drummey also was instrumental in the event planning and logistics for USA Fencing’s two senior international events on the World Cup circuit.

A former sailing instructor, Drummey will be joining the staff of the United States Sailing Association in Newport, R.I. as U.S. Sailing’s Olympic Coordinator.

"I want to thank Kate for all of her contributions to USA Fencing during the past three and a half years. While I am sad to see her leave USA Fencing, we wish her the very best as she moves on to new opportunities within the Olympic Movement,” said USA Fencing Executive Director Kris Ekeren (Littleton, Colo.)

USA Fencing will be opening a nationwide search to recruit candidates for the position which will work with Director of Operations Christine Strong-Simmons (Colorado Springs, Colo.) in the National Events Department.
