Marinescu elevated as International Esports Federation president

International Esport Federation vice-president Vlad Marinescu has been named to replace Colin Webster as the IESF chief.
Webster has decided to step down from the office of the federation president following the crisis emerging due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Marinescu also holds offices of the president of the United States Esports Federation and as Chief Media & Marketing Officer of the International Judo Federation.

Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Sultan Al Nahayan will take charge of vice-president’s office from Marinescu. The IESF board has unanimously confirmed that both president and vice-president shall hold such positions until the next Ordinary General Assembly.

“We are truly indebted to President Webster. His life has been committed to public service. We are fortunate that we managed to convince him to stay on the board to continue to provide sage advice. The solid foundations that IESF is built upon is down to Colin who has shown tremendous leadership in growing IESF as a truly global esports governing body,” Marinescu stated.

“IESF, a purely non-profit association, was established in 2008. During the next period I will dedicate myself to continuing the mission proposed by Colin and together with the united IESF Board, we will ensure to serve our members while growing and uniting the esports world further.”

Marinescu was co-opted to the organisation’s board in early 2019 before being elected for a three-year term at the IESF’s Ordinary General Meeting.
