Phil DeLone Returns To SCI As Executive Director


Safari Club International welcomes back Phil DeLone to the position of Executive Director.

DeLone served as SCI’s Executive Director from 1991 until 1996 and founded the Northern Nevada SCI Chapter where he served two terms as Chapter President, one term as Chapter Treasurer. The Chapter received the 2012 Top Gun Award.

More recently, DeLone has served as the Executive Director of Sales for the Silver Legacy in Reno, NV—one of SCI’s principal suppliers during the Annual Hunter’s Convention.

“We’re really pleased to have Phil DeLone returning to SCI,” said SCI President, John Whipple. ” Not only is he already familiar with the workings of SCI, he also brings to the table experience at the Chapter level and hands-on experience with SCI’s Convention and other major programs,” Whipple concluded.

DeLone will begin working out of the Tucson Headquarters in September where he will lead the staff there as well as in SCI’s Washington, D.C.; Canada; and South Africa offices.
