“This is a truly exciting day for USATT,” commented Peter Scudner, USATT’s Board Chair. “While we are sad to see Jim leave the board after two outstanding terms, we are thrilled that our Nominating and Governance Committee was able to find and recruit a director of Carolyne’s caliber. I am confident that her experience and network in the sports and entertainment industry will be extremely beneficial to our organization as we continue to grow and evolve.”
“The sport of table tennis is clearly on the verge of exploding in the United States,” continued Savini. “It’s exciting to have the opportunity work with the board on its growth and development.”
In her role as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Turnkey Search, Ms. Savini oversees all aspects of the company’s business including employer services, job seeker services, business development, corporate partnerships and internal staffing.
Since joining Turnkey in 2006, Carolyne has conducted and overseen the successful completion of over 250 high level searches in sports and entertainment. Her satisfied clients include the Chicago Cubs, FELD Entertainment, Georgetown University, the LA Marathon, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
