Deputy Head of Communication, FIFA

“In the past, we used to deal primarily with organizational matters – today, our focus is increasingly shifting to other issues, such as ethics, human rights, the protection of the environment and sustainability. I wholeheartedly welcome this change and appreciate that it is making my work even more interesting.”
