Madeira Names New Athletic Director

The Madeira City School District is thrilled to announce the appointment of Chris O'Brien as the new Athletic Director. With a background spanning over six years as an athletic director, O'Brien brings experience, a passion for education-based athletics, and a commitment to fostering positive relationships within the Madeira community.

O'Brien’s tenure as an athletic director has been marked by his ability to effectively manage athletic programs and inspire both students and staff. “His ability to hit the ground running is something that will help us greatly as we transition to a new athletic director,” said Madeira Principal David Kennedy. Kennedy added, “Chris O'Brien has consistently demonstrated his capability to enhance the athletic experience for students while prioritizing their academic achievements and personal growth.”

“I am excited to join Madeira and look forward to continuing the tradition of excellence in athletics,” said O'Brien. “Education-based athletics is at the core of my philosophy. I believe in developing students not only as athletes but as well-rounded individuals prepared for the future. Coaching coaches to be mentors and leaders is a crucial part of this process.”

O'Brien's approach centers on building and maintaining strong, positive relationships with all stakeholders, including students, parents, coaches, and community members. His commitment to open communication and collaborative problem-solving has been a cornerstone of his leadership style at both Oyler High School and in his most recent position at St. Bernard Elmwood Place High School.  He understands the importance of creating an inclusive and supportive environment where every student-athlete can thrive.

“Chris O'Brien's dedication to building relationships and fostering a positive athletic culture aligns perfectly with the values of our district,” said Superintendent Kenji Matsudo. “We are confident that his leadership will inspire our students and elevate our athletic programs to new heights.”

Under O'Brien's leadership, Madeira anticipates continued success in its athletic programs, with a strong emphasis on educational value and community engagement. His vision for the future includes not only winning games but also ensuring that student-athletes leave Madeira High School as confident, capable, and community-minded individuals.
