Sportaccord/GAISF Announces the Departure of its Director General, Christine DOMINGUEZ

Sportaccord Press Release - 14 May 2009

Sportaccord (formerly known as GAISF, the General Association of International Sports Federations) announced today the departure of its Director General, Mrs Christine DOMINGUEZ.

This decision is based on the fact that the GAISF General Assembly unanimously decided to move its headquarters from Monaco to Lausanne, at its annual meeting on 27 March 2009.

Mrs DOMINGUEZ became GAISF Director General in 2005, after many years of working in collaboration with her predecessor. She has efficiently managed the day-to-day running of the organisation and worked towards developing GAISF and has loyally supported its members.

"Christine has always put a lot into her work and we would like to sincerely thank her", stated the Sportaccord/GAISF President, Hein VERBRUGGEN. "Our best wishes go to her for her future and the new challenges that lie ahead."
