Dr. Nick Ellis, who became the first Chief Executive Officer for the Carolina Cup and Colonial Cup steeplechase races in Camden with his hiring in 2015, has decided to step down from his post.

The announcement came in the form of the following press release issued by the the Carolina Cup Racing Association.

“The Board of the Carolina Cup Racing Association (CCRA) has accepted the resignation of Nick Ellis as the Chief Executive Officer of the organization. Dr. Ellis will remain supportive of the Association but plans to return to his residence in Southern Pines, N.C. 

The board recognizes and appreciates his efforts to spur sponsorship, enhance branding and establish the Turf Club during his tenure.

CCRA Chairman Peggy Steinman has asked John Cushman, current vice-chairman and former race director, to accept the position of Interim Executive Director of the CCRA.  John served as the Executive Director of the CCRA for ten years starting in 1990 and brings tremendous experience to the position.”
