WakeBoarding Hall of Fame Announces Shaun Moore as Business Development Director

Orlando, FL March 31, 2021: The Wakeboarding Hall of Fame (WHF) announces Shaun Moore as its new Business Development Director.  Moore, a long-time supporter of wake sports and former professional wakeboarding athlete will direct the Hall of Fame’s business development department including developing and managing sponsorship programs.

Mike Weddington, WHF president said, “For many years, the Wakeboarding Hall of Fame has attracted thousands of followers and when we release a new historical story, the number of followers dramatically increases.  In fact, one story last week received more than 1.8 million people reached.  Analytics indicate our content is often leading the water sports category reaching more wake sports fans than most others.   We’re serious about establishing the Hall of Fame as a permanent institution for wake sports and our sponsorship opportunities will allow marketers to associate their brands with popular Hall of Fame content.  Shaun has been a valuable, dedicated board of directors’ member since the beginning.  We couldn’t be happier!  Shaun’s new role and his desire to create partnerships through marketing programs will allow the Hall of Fame to continue to grow.”

Shaun Moore said, “I’ve always believed the sport needed its own Hall of Fame and for years I’ve been proud to have been able to serve as a board of directors member. This new role opens an exciting chapter for me personally as well as a great opportunity for the Hall of Fame to fulfill its goals and missions.”
