Stefano BOSI has announced today his decision to resign from ETTU Presidency with immediate effect. The Italian manager, 58, was in the office from 1996. “It was a hard decision for me as I spent part of my life at the European Table Tennis Union’s service, but I realized time has come – Stefano BOSI explained -. In the last few months the situation within ETTU was not the same I was used to. After ITTF elections last May in Paris, where I was candidate in opposition to Adham SHARARA, I perceived a very difficult atmosphere inside ETTU. For the benefit of our Continent and for personal reasons I decided, after having consulted with the most of the Board members, to resign from the position of President”.
The whole Executive Board shall remain in charge with Deputy President Jean-Francois KAHN as acting President until the next ETTU Congress in Schwechat (AUT), scheduled on October 5th, with new elections to reinstate any vacancy.
“I always believed a strong ETTU being the key for our sport improvement – Stefano BOSI commented –. I hope my way out will help TT family to re-establish cooperation and harmony. I always served ETTU with all my heart and with loyalty” .
In conclusion, Stefano BOSI spent some words of gratitude. “I shared so many years with some fantastic persons and friends, including most of the Executive Board Members. I worked aside an admirable General Secretariat and a group of professionals whose skills and passion should not be underestimated, in the same interest of table tennis. I’ve no regrets definitively, hope everyone of my opponents feel the same”.
“I thank all the associations for the incredible help they have given to my “passion” and for the clear support they demonstrated during the elections in Herning, one year ago. All the best to Table Tennis and ciao…”
