Introducing IRWA's New CEO

    Dear IRWA Member,

    The International Executive Committee (IEC) is pleased to announce the appointment of IRWA’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Charlie Nobles!

    IRWA’s CEO is charged with building upon our Association’s record of success by further developing the organization’s vision, achieving goals for continued financial stability, engaging membership, and enhancing programming impact. Charlie’s skills and experience mirror the needs and expectations of the Association – he is a demonstrated leader who embraces partnership and transparency, holds deep non-profit and for-profit experience, and understands the value of education and training.

    Charlie brings over twenty years of non-profit and for-profit senior management experience to IRWA; seventeen years of which he spent strengthening membership-based associations. While serving as its Executive Director, he led the American Sailing Association to more than double its revenue and membership while overseeing dramatic improvements to its educational, marketing, and customer service operations. Charlie is an active real estate investor and holds a California real estate broker license. He looks forward to working with the entire IRWA community to continue the success and growth of the Association.

    Charlie’s start date is Monday, February 24, 2020 and he will be working closely with Daniel Stekol to transition the CEO responsibilities.

    The IEC is confident that Charlie is the right person to partner with our member leaders and staff in forging the next successful chapter for our Association. Please join us in welcoming Charlie!
