IOC President Bach Appoints Takeda, Ng To Chair Key Commissions
Published April 3, 2014
WORKING WITH MEDIA: Bach, who is interested in launching an Olympic network, named himself chair of the IOC’s TV and new media commission. Former IOC President Rogge previously held that post and divided responsibility for rights negotiations between Bach, who oversaw Europe, and Carrion, who oversaw the U.S. and other markets. Bach didn’t make clear who would take over responsibility for those negotiations in the future. New members of that committee, which is responsible for the bulk of IOC revenue, includes: Le Prince Feisal Al Hussein (Jordan); Habu Gumel (Nigeria); Juan Antonio Samaranch, Jr. (Spain); Gerardo Werthein (Argentina); and Zaiqing Yu (China). Ottavio Cinquanta (Italy) and John Coates (Australia) remain on the committee. Other new chairs include: Turkey’s Ugur Erdener (medical); Burundi’s Lydia Nsekera (women and sport); Britain’s Princess Anne (nominations); Belgium’s Baron Pierre-Olivier Beckers-Vieujant (audit); Australia’s John Coates (juridical, sport and law); Taiwan’s Ching Kuo-Wu (Olympic philately, numismatic and memorabilia commission); Argentina’s Gerardo Werthein (radio and television); and Monaco’s Prince Albert (sport and environment).
