Chartrand shares, “The IBF is heading down many new roads pursuing a brighter future for competitive bowling internationally. Kegel’s passion for the sport is stronger than ever, and we look forward to continuing this journey with IBF for many years to come.“
Oram commented “As we emerge from the global pandemic, that brought a halt to International competition, it is superb to have industry leading knowledge and experience of Kegel alongside us. Chris and his team are so valuable to IBF as we look to redefine the standards of international competition to raise the profile of the sport of bowling and the incredible athletes that work tirelessly on and off the lanes.”
