Australian Ladies Professional Golf, view President Shani Waugh has announced CEO Warren Sevil will step down from his role.

“Through his passion and hard work for the women’s professional game in this country and around the world, the ALPG is recognized as one of the five major women’s golf tours in the world. He was also an integral part in the development of the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings and sits on the Rolex Rankings Governing Board”.

“The ALPG Tour Schedule has well and truly held its own on the Australian sporting landscape in the last 15 years thru the coordination skills of Warren Sevil. He has worked diligently to create strong and lasting relationships with our key stakeholders both here and abroad.”

“His influence on Australian women’s golf was highlighted when he was recently named in the top 25 most influential people in Australian Golf over the past 40 years. “ Waugh added.

“I have known Warren all my professional career and have witnessed first-hand the dedication and hard work that he has put into our organization. He will be missed by many.“

In his letter to the board, Warren spoke warmly of his long tenure at ALPG:

“The fifteenth anniversary of my role with ALPG is approaching and I feel the time is right to disengage. Fifteen years is a long time in any position, so for the benefit of my own personal development and for that of the ALPG, I believe new directions and fresh perspectives are healthy and necessary for both parties.” he said.

“The ALPG has been a huge part of my life. My time with this exclusive organisation has been demanding, but rewarding in so many ways. I have been proud of my position, proud of my achievements and passionate about my responsibility to the organisation and its members. I have met and learned from hundreds of wonderful people across the broad spectrum of ALPG and international women’s golf, many of whom are now close personal friends.”

Waugh said that Sevil will work with the Board and staff of ALPG to ensure a smooth transition to the next stage of management, and will finish on Friday 31 May.
