My name is Don Schultz. I am a retired IBMer. In 1987, at the age of 51, after 30 years with IBM, I retired in order to devote full time to volunteer chess promotions. I’m married, have three daughters and nine grandchildren. Awho has spent the last half century active in chess promotion at the local national and international. While with IBM I travelled extensively. much of my travel was international as I was assigned to IBM’s worldwide marketing center in Brussels for five years and their European headquarters in Paris for another five years. During this time, I served in many chess leadership positions both for the United States Chess Federation and FIDE.
I edited the award winning Chess magazine: floridaCHESS, started both the prestigious Gallery of Distinguished Chess Journalists and the “Cramer Awards” program for excellence in chess journalism. In 1993 and 1994, together with Grandmaster Yaser Seirawan, I managed a ches school for children.
