The New York Racing Association Board of Directors appointed an interim management team during a brief meeting in Manhattan Monday. NYRA Vice President of Facilities and Racing Surfaces Glen Kozak, Vice President of Corporate Development David O’Rourke and Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Susanne Stover will comprise the management team until the open position of Chief Executive Officer is filled by the board.

The management team will fill in for Ellen McClain, who announced in January that she would be stepping down as President and COO. McClain assumed NYRA’s top position when Charles Hayward was fired last year after a takeout scandal. Her last day at NYRA was supposed to be Tuesday.

Board Chair David Skorton offered an update on the CEO search, saying that the board’s Executive Search Committee and recruitment firm RSR Partners are nearly done with the screening process and will begin conducting interviews soon.

"We’re making progress and we expect that soon we’ll be able to bring finalists before the Nominations and Governance Committee, followed by the full Board," Skorton said. "Until that decision is made, I look forward to working with the interim management team and members of the full Board to ensure progress and appropriate stewardship."
