Pentathlon CEO resigns post

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, , ,

Brad Camp, who has served as CEO of USA Pentathlon, has stepped down amid speculation that the Olympic national governing body may move from Colorado Springs.

His resignation came with little warning at the national governing body, said managing director and spokesman Rob Stull.

Camp, a West Point graduate and the former CEO of USA Archery, was named to his post in summer 2009. His appointment coincided with continuing turmoil within the organization’s governing group

His departure follows the resignations of several board members and selection of a new board chairman.

Stull also dismissed the speculation the organization might leave town.

He said USA Pentathlon, which trains athletes to participate in five different sport categories, closed its San Antonio headquarters in 2005. It re-established itself in Colorado Springs at the Olympic Training Center under the oversight of the USOC.

“The important thing is that we’re not leaving Colorado Springs and the Olympic Training Center. We’ve trained Olympians here – and we’re not moving away.”

Stull declined to say why Camp resigned but said he would stay involved during the transition.
