“Along with their rowing backgrounds and connections, both William and George add professional expertise that will be valuable to the organization as we head into the Olympic year and beyond,” said USRF Chair Bill McNabb, former Chairman and CEO of Vanguard.
“I owe so much to the sport of rowing, which transformed me as a student, athlete, and person,” said Weil. “My wife, Tracey, and I also deeply appreciate how the sport has favorably impacted our kids. I am excited to join the USRowing Foundation to support its philanthropic work, which includes bringing more people into the sport, increasing its diversity, and funding the U.S. High Performance Program.”
