It was 2004 and a young Jo Ito, just barely out of college, landed the job of athletic director at the International School of Düsseldorf in Germany.
“I was finishing up my degree and started coaching at the International School of Düsseldorf. The timing just happened to work out where the athletic director moved on, and I applied as a young, inexperienced sports administrator, and landed the job,” Jo said. “I enjoyed working at the school, the kids, and coaching. The opportunity fell into my lap, and I never looked back.”
