Executive Director, Move United


Glenn Merry joined Disabled Sports USA in 2018 as its executive director and led the effort to rebrand to Move United, after a merger with Adaptive Sports USA. In his first two years with the organization, Merry has overseen tremendous intentional growth and change following the creation of Vision 2028. This vision has led to key outcomes in the last 18 months, including 35 percent growth, the launch of the U.S. Wheelchair Football league with the NFL and the merger that created the new brand Move United. Under the recent period of COVID-19, Move United launched #AdaptAtHome creating more than 1,000 virtual events serving 200,000 registrants. Merry previously spent 20 years with US Rowing, departing as chief executive officer. There, he championed diversity and inclusion, launched adaptive rowing, created the America Rows youth outreach initiative and the Freedom Rows veteran outreach program, and led the organization’s Olympic endeavor to an 11-year gold medal streak in the Women’s Eight.
