INDIANAPOLIS — USA Gymnastics President and CEO Kerry Perry has resigned after nine months on the job, the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors said in a statement.
“On behalf of the Board of USA Gymnastics, I want to thank Kerry for her leadership under very difficult circumstances,” said Karen Golz, chair of the USA Gymnastics Board.
According to ESPN, Perry was forced to resign after complaints in how she had led the organization since the Larry Nassar Sex Abuse Scandal.
Nassar, a former USA Gymnastics national team doctor, is in prison after hundreds of women and girls said he sexually abused them under the guise of medical treatment.
The USA Gymnastics board is working to name an interim CEO and is in the process of creating a search committee to find a permanent replacement, the board said.
The office for the national headquarters of USA Gymnastics is in downtown Indianapolis.
