He was appointed as USA Triathlon’s Commissioner of Officials in January 1997 and continues to serve in that capacity today. During his tenure, the USAT Officials Program has increased from 75 referees to the 350 officials regularly assigned in 2014. Charlie’s duties include recruiting and training new officials, setting policy and standards for enforcement, interpreting the Competitive Rules, ruling on equipment legality, and answering rules and penalty questions from USAT members.
