Earlier today, USA Team Handball Board of Director’s President Jeff Utz informed Matt Van Houten that he has been selected as the Federation’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Van Houten is a former USA National Team goalie and has played club handball for West Point (89 grad) and the New York Athletic Club (NYAC). In addition to his playing career he has served as USA Team Handball’s Athlete’s Advisory Council (AAC) representative and as the Chair of the USOC’s AAC, representing all Olympic athletes.
Van Houten’s professional career has been as a trial attorney and he currently is a partner with Holmberg, Galbraith, Van Houten & Miller in Ithaca, NY.
Editor’s note: I have tentative plans to interview Matt this weekend. If you have any questions you would like to ask the new CEO chime in on our Facebook page.
