Vice President, U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Foundation
Charlie Huebner was named vice president of Paralympic development for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Foundation in August 2014 after leading the strategy to integrate Paralympic programs into USOC Divisions as chief of Paralympics since July 2006. In his current role, he collaborates with the USOPF Board and Senior management, to cultivate national leaders to advise and support the building of the USOC philanthropic brand.
Since joining the USOC in 2001 as the director of the newly founded U.S. Paralympics division, Huebner has led initiatives in collaboration with USOC leaders to enhance programs, resources and awareness of Paralympic sport. He led the creation, recruitment and implementation of the USOC Board-appointed Paralympic Advisory Committee, which provides strategic advice on Paralympic initiatives.
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. In 2014, Huebner was awarded with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service, which is the highest honor that a civilian can receive from the U.S. Secretary of Defense.
