USDAA signs on a new executive to broaden scope and quality of services.
USDAA President Kenneth Tatsch has announced that Andy Hartman will be joining USDAA in February as Vice President.
Andy has a career-long background in communications and marketing and has served as Director of Agility for the American Kennel Club the past few years. "After identifying growing needs within the USDAA organization the past couple of years, we were on a quest to find the right person to fill a new executive position focusing on communications and marketing," says Tatsch.
Tatsch continues, "Andy and I have taken time to get to know each other over the past month, and I'm confident that Andy's nature and philosophy are aligned with USDAA's philosophy of inclusiveness, fun and sport. The USDAA community is its own culture, and Andy and his wife Cindy, as current competitors in USDAA events, genuinely get it."
The Hartmans will be relocating to Texas, and will be a welcome addition to the staff. "I'm looking forward to joining USDAA - the organization that started agility in North America," says Hartman. "I'm excited to continue working in dog agility, the sport I love."
"We look forward to growing the organization further as we move ahead with more resources in place," says Tatsch.
