The International Jet Sports Boating Association is pleased to announce that Scott Frazier, of Half Moon Bay, California, has been appointed as the new Managing Director of the IJSBA. Frazier replaces the outgoing Biorn Tangeland who will continue to consult on international issues as well as the IJSBA website and integrated technology.

“I am honored and very humbled to be able to serve my fellow racers and industry colleagues in this capacity,” said Frazier. “My goal is to build a sustainable future for the IJSBA and the sport of Personal Watercraft Racing by concentrating on three individual canons: improved communication, predictability, and cost control. I feel that strengthening these categories will improve the relationship that racers have with the sport and the IJSBA. My door is always open. I plan on taking a week to get settled and then get very active on addressing racers concerns. I am also very excited to work towards bringing the OEM manufacturers, aftermarket producers, and racers closer together. I truly look forward to working with everyone.”

“Scott Frazier brings varied experience as a racer, enthusiast and ambassador representing riders’ needs and concerns” said Biorn Tangeland. “He has always been involved with the IJSBA and understands the sport and its challenges.”

Scott Frazier is an attorney, specializing in sports and entertainment matters. He has represented NFL players, multi-platinum recording artists, other artists and athletes. Scott brings with him significant experience and a deep understanding of the sports and entertainment fields, and has been an IJSBA member and competitor since 1992. Earlier this year, Frazier was elected as the first IJSBA racer representative. 2004 Women’s Runabout World Champion, Amy Green, has been appointed to replace Frazier as the interim racer representative until the 2006 elections.
