ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed

Bahar Gidwani, chief executive officer of the ACBL, has been relieved of his duties according to ACBL President Jay Whipple.

“While Mr. Gidwani brought many new ideas to the organization, we regret there are issues that remain unresolved despite counselling by the Board of Directors,” Whipple says. For legal reasons, Whipple cannot elaborate further.

The Board has appointed Chief Financial Officer Joe Jones to fill the role of acting executive director until a successor is named. A search committee has been formed and work is under way to fill the position.
