Lausanne, Switzerland, January 20, 2017 – USA Volleyball CEO Jamie Davis, who started his role on January 3, continued his on-boarding process this week as the top volleyball leader in the United States by making his first trip abroad and meeting the top international volleyball leaders of FIVB to learn, enhance and strategize concepts to grow the sport of volleyball in the United States and around the world.

Davis, along with USA Volleyball Board of Directors Chairman Lori Okimura, met with FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça F° on Thursday in Lausanne, Switzerland – headquarters of the FIVB. In their meeting with President Graça, Davis and Okimura discussed ways USA Volleyball will change its corporate strategy in the future under the new executive leadership.
