ARLINGTON, TX -- Steve Johnson has resigned as executive director of Bowling Proprietors' Association of America, effective immediately. BPAA made the announcement during its recently board of directors meeting at the International Bowling Campus in Arlington, TX, where the association is headquartered.

"We all thank Steve for his leadership, marketing acumen and dedicated years of service," said BPAA president Cathy DeSocio. "We greatly appreciate all that he has brought to BPAA, and we wish him the best in the future."

DeSocio said BPAA will soon begin a national search for a successor. In the meantime, the association's officers on its board, who include DeSocio, president-elect Tom Martino, secretary Alan Nordman and treasurer Nancy Schenk, will assume the executive director's responsibilities until a replacement is chosen.

"After my years of service and undergoing the challenge of leading and implementing a number of initiatives for the association, it is time for new leadership," Johnson said. "I'm proud of the progress and accomplishments we've made at the BPAA; and this is an appropriate time for me to pursue another opportunity outside of bowling, and for BPAA to select an individual to build on what we have all accomplished."

Founded in 1932, the BPAA represents about 4,000 bowling centers.
