FIFA, football’s scandal-hot governing body has appointed Thomas Peyer from Switzerland as its chief financial officer. He will take up his position on 5 September 2016.
Peyer joins us from Kuoni Group, where he most recently held the position of group CFO. Before that, he held a variety of senior finance positions at Kuoni Group in Zurich and London, managing teams nationally and internationally.
He replaces Markus Kattner, who was fired as FIFA’s finance director and deputy secretary last year after an internal probe found he had received a number of irregular bonus payments worth millions of pounds.
Weeks before Kattner’s departure, the man tasked with reforming FIFA quit after it passed a resolution which he claimed undermined the independence of its watchdog committees.
