Charlie Huebner was named chief of Paralympics for the United States Olympic Committee in July 2006 after having joined the organization in 2001 as the director of the newly formed U.S. Paralympics division. In his current role, Huebner oversees Paralympic programing across all USOC divisions.  

During the USOC governance reform of 2003-06, Huebner served in interim roles overseeing alumni, development and Paralympic programs. Prior to the USOC, he spent 10 years as executive director of the U.S. Association of Blind Athletes and three years as coordinator of communications for Arizona Governor Rose Mofford.

Huebner is very active in volunteer community service projects that impact children’s charities. He currently serves on the board of directors of The Christopher Ames Matthews Project, The Grace Fund and Pennies for Nicoll, and is co-founder of the Colorado Springs YOT Club, which is a cost effective black-tie event that collects toys for underprivileged children. In 1996, Huebner was one of 41 Americans to be named a Jefferson Award winner for community service.
