The World Snooker Federation (WSF) is today delighted to announce the appointment of Mike Peachey to its board of directors as Treasurer.
Peachey has vast experience in the administration of cue sports with his previous roles having seen him serve on the board of the World Confederation of Billiard Sports (WCBS) from 2005-2010, during which he was appointed to the WCBS Organising Committee to the 2009 World Games in Chinese Taipei. Mike was also the official WCBS board member selected to represent Cue Sports during the Asian Games held in Vietnam, and has also previously served as President of both the Australian Billiards and Snooker Council and the Oceania Billiards and Snooker Federation.
With a long-standing interest in billiards sports spanning 40 years, Peachey has also acted as a tournament referee at international level and been involved with billiards sports media as both a correspondent and distributor.
Mike Peachey said: “I am honoured to be able to take up the position of Treasurer within the WSF. From day one I have been convinced that the WSF will take our sport forward and that the opportunity to be able to work closely with National and Regional Federations, World Billiards, World Ladies Billiards & Snooker and World Disability Billiards and Snooker, will ensure a major future for our sport.
“I will give my total commitment to the WSF and I am convinced that the team can make a positive difference for the future of both snooker and billiards.”
WPBSA Chairman Jason Ferguson said: “I am delighted to be able to welcome someone with the wealth of high-level administrative experience and commitment to billiards sports that Mike has demonstrated for so long. His understanding of International Olympic Committee structures and hard-earned reputation across the world for his work means that he will be a valuable addition to our team.
“It is crucial that the WSF is able to represent billiards sports at a global level and this appointment underlines our commitment to the Oceania region.”
