PHILADELPHIA – Maccabi USA has hired Marshall Einhorn to serve as Chief Executive Officer for the organization.
“Maccabi USA is thrilled to welcome Marshall Einhorn as our new Chief Executive Officer,” said Maccabi USA President Jeffrey Bukantz, of Montville, N.J. “In pursuit of our Mission to ‘Build Jewish Pride Through Sports,’ we understand that new relationships must always be built and existing partnerships strengthened to help meet that goal. Through his previous work experience, Marshall has demonstrated exemplary skill in these areas and we are excited for the opportunity to connect more individuals, more families, and more corporate partners to the Maccabi experience.”
Einhorn most recently served as Executive Director of Brown RISD Hillel in Providence, R.I. During his eight-year tenure there, Einhorn helped increase annual giving to Brown RISD Hillel by 70 percent, nearly doubled the staff, and managed key leadership relationships in pursuit of Brown RISD Hillel’s mission to support a diversity of students explore, develop and deepen their Jewish identities. In addition to his achievements, Einhorn received the Hillel International Exemplar of Excellence Award in 2016 and Brown RISD Hillel was awarded the Hillel International “Great Place to Work” award in 2015.
Before beginning his career in Jewish communal leadership, Einhorn worked for Reebok in their Marketing Operations division and for CGI as a systems consultant. Among his accomplishments, Einhorn served as the founding student co-chair of the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, a leading forum for industry professionals (executives and leading researchers) and students to discuss the increasing role of analytics in the global sports industry. He has a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Tufts University.
“I am humbled to join the dedicated group of board members, professionals, volunteers, and supporters who have made Maccabi USA so successful in building Jewish pride through sports and connecting athletes to the global Jewish community,” said Einhorn. “The Maccabi movement played a profound role in my own development as both a Jew and a leader. I have seen first-hand the power of sports to bring Jews of all stripes together across differences and I look forward to bringing the opportunity to experience Maccabi to more people in the years to come.”
Einhorn will join the Maccabi USA team at a key time during its quadrennial of major activities. Immediately after beginning his tenure on July 1, Maccabi USA will send delegations to participate in the 14th Pan American Maccabi Games in Mexico City and the 15th European Maccabi Games in Budapest. Those games will serve as the springboard toward the 21st World Maccabiah Games in Israel in summer 2021.
“Together with President Bukantz, a highly committed lay leadership team, and a talented professional staff, Marshall now has the opportunity to elevate our organization in ways it has never seen before, and to ensure that Maccabi USA’s brand becomes known throughout the entire United States,” said Maccabi USA Vice President Arnie D. Fielkow, of New Orleans. “Once one engages with Maccabi – whether as an athlete, coach, parent, volunteer or donor – one immediately falls in love with our organization’s unique intersection of Judaism and sports, and Marshall has a tremendous opportunity to grow that support base in unprecedented ways. Maccabi USA’s future has never been brighter and I can’t wait to watch it soar.”
Einhorn is married to Dr. Deborah Skolnick Einhorn; they are the proud parents of three budding Jewish athletes and fans.
