Vlad Marinescu has been named the new President of the International Esports Federation (IESF) after Colin Webster stepped down.

科林·韦伯斯特(Colin Webster)卸任后,弗拉德·马里内斯库(Vlad Marinescu)被任命为国际电子竞技联合会(IESF)的新会长。

The IESF said Webster elected to stand down because the coronavirus pandemic made it difficult for him to carry out his duties from South Africa.

Marinescu had been vice-president and that role will now be filled by Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Sultan Al Nahayan.

The changes were proposed by Webster and ratified unanimously by the IESF Board.

Webster will remain on the Board, while the new President and vice-president will hold those roles until the next Ordinary General Assembly.

“We are truly indebted to President Webster,” Marinescu said. 

“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.”

科林·韦伯斯特(Colin Webster)卸任后,弗拉德·马里内斯库(Vlad Marinescu)被任命为国际电子竞技联合会(IESF)的新会长。

国际电子竞技联合会指,韦伯斯特之所以辞任会长职务,是因为新冠状病毒大流行他必须留在南非,导致无法履行IESF会长职责。

马里内斯库(Marinescu)之前任IESF副会长职位,现由谢赫·苏丹·本·哈利法·本·苏丹·阿勒·纳哈扬(Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Sultan Al Nahayan)担任。

韦伯斯特提出辞任 IESF会长职务,并由执委会一致通过批准。韦伯斯特将继续留任执委会成员,而新任会长和副会长将担任职务直到下届会员大会为止。

新会长马里纳斯库说:“我们确实要感谢韦伯斯特会长,他一生致力于公共服务。我们很幸运能说服他留任执委会成员继续为IESF的发展提供建议。IESF能有今天的坚实基础要归功于科林·韦伯斯特,IESF得以成长为真正的全球电子竞技管理机构,归功于韦伯斯特超凡的领导能力。”

Founded in 2008, the IESF is the oldest governing body claiming to have responsibility for esports.

More than 60 nations are members of the IESF.

Webster said current circumstances have “sorely tested my efficacy in serving those who elected me” and that he believes the new President and vice-president are “better suited to lead IESF in these troubled times”.

The American Marinescu is also President of the United States eSports Federation and works as the chief media and marketing officer for the International Judo Federation.

Marinescu was co-opted onto the Board in April 2019 before being elected vice-President in December of the same year.

In addition to his work in judo, Marinescu was director general of SportAccord and President of New Jersey-based RSportz, a cloud-based membership registration platform, for a period.

IESF于2008年成立,目前有60多个国家/地区会员,是负责推动国际电子竞技运动发展最早成立的一个国际组织。

韦伯斯特说 “我会向 IESF的同事们负责,尽我所能为大家及国际电子竞技运动发展提供服务”,他相信新任会长和副会长 “更适合在这个动荡时期领导IESF”。

马里纳斯库同时是美国电子竞技联合会主席,并担任国际柔道联合会首席媒体和市场营销官。

马里内斯库于2019年4月被选为执委会成员,同年12月当选为副主席。

除了在柔道工作外,马里纳斯库还曾担任世界体育总会(SportAccord)的总干事和新泽西州注册的云基础会员平台RSportz的总裁。
