The Founders

Bassam Turk

Bassam Turk has a Masters Degree in Economic and Social Administration (with a Minor in International Economy) and launched his career in banking, gaining experience from the Central Bank of Lebanon (financial markets), Allied Business Bank (treasury dept.) and Saradar Bank (international dept.).

A sports lover from day one, Bassam kicked off Sport Evasion in 1998 with his partner Eva Aouad.

As owner and Managing Director, he envisaged a firm that could offer targeted event management and sports tourism. This is why Bassam became the exclusive agent of UCPA (a French governmental association specialized in sports tourism) which ultimately resulted in Sport Evasion winning the Tourism Trophy from the French-Lebanese Chamber of Commerce in September 2000.

Bassam is Sport Evasion's head referee overlooking the creation of event concepts, the media exposure (before, during and after the event), arrangements for foreign athletes and event production and execution.

Focusing on Sport Evasion ever since it was established Bassam has scored numerous sport events, corporate events, sampling campaigns, shop openings, entertainment, PR, parties, and launchings. Under Bassam's guidance, Sport Evasion organized over 50 events between 2000-2006 alone. In his spare time you can catch Bassam doing all kinds of sports (especially outdoors), traveling, watching movies and TV and working as an elected member of Yahchouch's city council since 2010, or as a founding member of his school Alumni College des Freres Maristes - Champville.

Bassam is the loving father of two and is Eva's number one man.

 

Evelyne Aouad Turk

Evelyne Aouad Turk (lovingly known as Eva) is the bubbly mother of two and Bassam's other half. Eva has a Masters degree in Political Science and Public Administration and decided to dive into the sports world while still a student by becoming the sports editor and a reporter for SPORTS.COM.

In 1998, Eva became a partner in Sport Evasion and remained a central player on the team until 2008 when she took a two year break to channel her energy into the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB) as the Program Manager. During this time, Eva proudly focused on the empowerment of women in business and even participated in the Presidential Summit on entrepreneurship in DC (2010).

She is now back on Sport Evasion's team to bolster the company's strategic growth plan and assist regional and service expansion, and launching E Positive.

Eva is a main coach behind the creation of event concepts, the media exposure (before, during and after the event), arrangements for foreign athletes and event production and execution.

And Eva is now positively delighted to be at the helm of E Positive, the Corporate Event's wing of Sport Evasion.

Eva's interests include sports, tourism and foreign languages and her hobbies are trekking, swimming, reading, traveling, photography and going to concerts.

Eva is a MEPI LAA member and a State Alumni.
