After an extensive national search, the Bowling Centers Association of Wisconsin has hired Neil Stremmel as its next executive director, effective Jan. 3.

In June, current BCAW Executive Director Yvonne Bennett informed the BCAW Board of Directors of her intent to resign the position, effective the first of the year.

“Neil is a consummate professional with a tremendous amount of management and bowling experience,” said BCAW President Erik Gialdella, “He understands the association’s mission well and has great respect for our proprietors. The board is excited to work with Neil and we are excited to see the Bowling Centers Association of Wisconsin continue to grow and flourish under Neil’s leadership.”

Stremmel’s parents owned a small bowling center in Stillman Valley, Ill., where he grew up working in the family business. In 2000, he was hired by Bowling Inc. Shared Services, working for ABC and WIBC as Director of Research when Bowling Headquarters was in Greendale, Wis. With the formation of USBC in 2005, his role evolved into what would become the Managing Director of the National Governing Body, a position he held until 2016.

Most recently, Stremmel has been the general manager of Cypress Lanes, a 40-lane family entertainment center in Winter Haven, Fla.

For 18 years (2001-2018), he served as a volunteer on the Technical Committee for World Bowling, the last 10 years as chairman.

“I am very much looki­ng forward​ to returning to Wisconsin to work with the board, Yvonne and the team as well as all of the proprietors across the great state of Wisconsin,” said Stremmel.​ “I hope that my unique background and experience can help all the members and supporters of BCAW.”
