The Ladies European Tour today announced that Alexandra Armas has decided to step down as the Executive Director at the end of 2012. Armas will continue in her role until the end of the season and will work closely with the Tour Board on the selection process for the next Executive Director candidate.
“I truly believe in the strength of women’s golf and feel privileged to have had the opportunity to help with the development of women’s golf and the LET. With the LET in a better business position than ever and with a strong team and structure in place, it is now the time for me to consider new challenges and projects,” Armas said.
Karen Lunn, Chairman of the Board of Directors, commented: “Alex has been an asset to the Ladies European Tour, driving the company forward and impacting the growth of women’s golf across the globe. Thanks to her commitment, loyalty, business understanding and insight to the players’ requirements, the Tour has been rewarded with positive results and is financially well placed for continued success. We are grateful that Alex has agreed to continue in the role until the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition while the Board will commence the process of selecting a new Executive Director for the future of the Tour. We thank Alex for her dedication to the LET over these last seven years. During her tenure the LET has continued to expand with 15 tournaments in 2004 to 25 in 2012 with a roll-out in new territories such as Dubai, India, New Zealand, Turkey and China. We wish her the best of luck in her future projects.”
