Conmebol appoint new secretary general

November 3, 2016

The South American Football federation (Conmebol) has appointed José Manuel Astigarraga as its new secretary general.

Astigarraga is due to lead Conmebol’s administrative arm in their attempt to adopt the measures outlined by the new constitution on September 14. 

The new secretary general has over 25 years of management experience with companies in financial services, sale telecommunications and the media.

One of the cornerstones of change of the new Conmebol is building an institution that is corporate, professional and modern. That starts with the design of an organisational structure and the formation of a team to respond to the competitive needs of Conmebol within the context of the global sports industry,” said Conmebol president Alejandro Dominguez.

José Astigarraga has a proven track record in senior management in various sectors and will contribute his expertise in auditing processes and corporate transformation to ensure transparency of the institution.”
