Greg Easton resigns from executive board, replaced by Aladin Gabr
“For personal and professional reasons, I have made the very difficult decision to resign from the World Archery executive board and the FIDTA board. My ongoing work with the Easton companies, the Easton Foundations and other ventures will continue my lifelong involvement in archery, and I look forward to continuing to support worldwide archery.”
Greg had served as a member of the board since 2013.
His father, Jim Easton, was president of World Archery from 1989 to 2005.
World Archery president Prof Dr Ugur Erdener thanked Greg for his family’s continued commitment to the sport:
“On behalf of World Archery, the executive board and the wider archery family, my thanks go to Greg for his nine years of valued service.”
“While we are disappointed to lose Greg from the board, we know that the Easton family has played a vital role in the development of our sport for the past century and I am certain that the Easton legacy will continue to grow through their ongoing contributions to archery.”
Greg was due to serve on the executive board until 2025, having been re-elected as a member for a third time at congress in 2021.
Aladin Gabr, the former president of World Archery Africa who previously served on the board from 2013 to 2021, will replace Greg until congress in 2023. The position will then be opened for election on a two-year term. Gabr was the runner-up in the elections held in 2021.
World Archery’s executive board consists of 15 people, including the president, first vice president, three vice presidents and the chair of the athletes’ committee.
