Aubrey Sheena has served the sport of water skiing for half a century at the highest levels, and he continues to offer his wisdom and his financial expertise to this day.
Taking up the sport as a skier in the 1950s at the historic Ruislip Water Ski Club, Aubrey represented Great Britain in competition into the 1960s. As a Chartered Accountant, Aubrey was naturally called upon for his fiscal proficiency. He served the British Federation as Treasurer several times but was also elected President for four years and has served on its management committee for more than four decades.
In 1984 Aubrey was elected as President of the EAME Region (then Group II), and continued in that office for a remarkable 14 years. During that period he created within the Region a bonded unit of friendship among countries and combined that sense of unity with healthy fiscal soundness.
While still serving as EAME President and a member of the IWSF Executive Board, Aubrey took on the newly-created responsibility of IWSF Treasurer, a position he held until 2002. Aubrey continues to provide the IWSF with the benefit of his business insight.
I am pleased to announce the induction into the International Hall of Fame of one of the sport's most dedicated and experienced volunteers: Aubrey Sheena.
