Former Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) senior vice-president and chief operating officer Ann Rodriguez has been appointed chief strategy officer at Los Angeles 2028.
Rodriguez, who has previously worked for Under Armour and Major League Soccer (MLS) teams Atlanta United and San Jose Earthquakes, will be based in New York.
She will report to Los Angeles 2028 chief revenue officer Kathy Carter and chief operating officer John Harper.
"Ann is a force in the sports industry," said Carter.
"She joins Los Angeles 2028 with a proven track record to bring insights and analysis to large-scale programmes.
"Her ability to build robust, effective strategies will be a vital part of our growth over the eight years."
Rodriguez becomes the latest major appointment made by the Organising Committee of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, following Katy Chambers Mollica joining as head of partnership sales for US Olympic and Paralympic Properties in January.
Described as a 20-year veteran of the sports industry, Rodriguez joins Los Angeles 2028 having worked for over a year at the WNBA.
Rodriguez had been senior vice-president of the WNBA league operations before her promotion to chief operating officer in April 2018.
She has also held leadership roles at Under Armour and the two MLS teams.
Rodriguez was the owner and President of Borinquen Management LLC, a boutique management consultancy focused on business strategy and organisational development for leading global sports and entertainment properties, before taking up the position with Los Angeles 2028.
