Citing his desire to pursue other projects, Guy said, "In my four years with NAST, I have accomplished the goals I set out to meet. It is time to pass it on to someone else." Guy was president before being named executive director.
"Guy's contributions and dedication to the growth and betterment of the organization have been considerable and he will be missed by members, competitors and sponsors alike," says Dave Sweetman, current NAST president. "His sense of humor at awards presentations has always been a crowd favorite and many thought the competition incomplete unless they were 'picked on' by Gunrunner."
Nominations for a replacement executive director are being considered, with qualifications, background and goals being reviewed by NAST's Board of Directors.
