Amanda Kraus took over as CEO of USRowing in November 2020, leading the national governing body at a time of challenges across the sports-event industry. But her background is expected to help her on a number of fronts, including adding much needed diversity to the ranks of participants and the chance to fundraise for any number of projects. Before taking the helm, Kraus founded and led the nonprofit Row New York, which provided opportunities to row for those who previously didn’t have access to the sport. In this conversation with SportsTravel Editor and Publisher Jason Gewirtz, Kraus outlines her goals for the organization, her interest in USRowing, the balance between supporting the national teams and growing membership, and the outlook for the Olympic Games and the NGB’s events in 2021.
