Jeff Dyrek, a highly successful sport management executive with experience in Olympic, professional, and youth sports, has been named USA Water Polo's Director of Marketing. Dyrek joins USA Water Polo from the California State Soccer Association (South) where he served as Director of Tournaments & Competition. In his role at USA Water Polo, Dyrek will oversee all marketing and promotional efforts for the organization in collaboration with Chief Operating Officer Marty Samuels.

"I am pleased to welcome Jeff to our team at USA Water Polo. He brings a great deal of experience in a variety of areas in the sports world and is no stranger to the Olympic movement. I look forward to his efforts in growing the sport, not just in members, but in interest and excitement, all across the country," said Marty Samuels, USA Water Polo Chief Operating Officer.

"I am excited to be part of the USA Water Polo team," said Dyrek. "Coming off a gold medal performance in London coupled with continued membership growth shows the organization is certainly headed in the right direction. I look forward to contributing to continued growth and supporting the quest for gold in Rio 2016. "

Prior to his time at the California State Soccer Association, Dyrek spent nearly a decade as the National Events Director of USA Triathlon, the National Governing Body for the sport of triathlon in America. While at USA Triathlon, Dyrek helped build the USAT Age Group National Championship into the fifth largest event in the United States. He also assisted in ventures that tripled membership from 53,000 to 160,000 and increased sanctioned events from 1,500 to over 4,300. In addition, Dyrek bolstered efforts to promote and grow USA Triathlon's youth program "Splash and Dash" at the grassroots level and succeeded in having triathlon recognized as an emerging NCAA sport among many other duties.
