Luis Boué was installed as the Orange Bowl Committee’s new President & Chair during an evening reception on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at Riviera Country Club in Coral Gables. An Orange Bowl Committee member since 2006, Boué succeeds Immediate Past President & Chair Andrew Hertz as the 76th President of the Orange Bowl Committee.
Boué will oversee the Committee’s continued mission to promote and serve the South Florida community, while presiding over the 2014 Capital One Orange Bowl and surrounding events. This year will be the 81st edition of the football classic and the first under the new College Football Playoff. In addition to the annual football game, the 2014-15 year-round Orange Bowl schedule includes the 21st Annual MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic and a collection of entertainment, family and youth sports events.
“Having served on the Orange Bowl Committee’s executive board for the past six years, I have had the privilege to work with some outstanding members, staff and volunteers,” said Boué. “These experiences have helped prepare me to take on this position. I look forward to being the President & Chair of the Orange Bowl as we enter a new age of college football and continue to showcase the South Florida community. My intentions are to hold the Orange Bowl to the high expectations that have become our standard.”
In addition to his duties presiding over the game and events, Boué will also oversee the Orange Bowl’s commitment to youth sports in South Florida. On an annual basis, the Orange Bowl invests nearly $1 million to the South Florida community, funding a variety of initiatives that impact more than 16,000 kids including the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance presented by Sports Authority, various scholarship programs and many other youth athletic events. Boué will also oversee the development of the Orange Bowl Committee’s third legacy gift project, the restoration of a park in Ives Estates. This follows the Committee’s 2013 renovations of Carter Park in Fort Lauderdale and Moore Park in Allapattah in 2009-2011.
Lee E. Stapleton moves into Boué’s previous role as President-Elect & Chair-Elect and will serve as the 77th President & Chair during the 2015-16 year. Michael Chavies will serve as First Vice-Chair and will become President & Chair in 2016-17. Eric L. Poms enters his ninth year as the Chief Executive Officer and marks his 22nd year overall with the Committee.
