Executive Transactions

Lawyer FIONA DE JONG "has been appointed" as Australian Olympic Committee secretary general, "becoming the first woman to assume the role." De Jong, who assumes the role of chief administrative and financial officer, "has spent 10 years at the AOC" as its director of sport. De Jong "is a graduate of Harvard Business Schools Advanced Management Program." She replaces CRAIG PHILLIPS, "who resigned in June after 23 years with the AOC." De Jong "will start her new position" on Oct. 7 (THE AUSTRALIAN, 8/7). ... LUIS SEGURA "has been confirmed as president of the Argentine Football Association" until Oct. '15 following the death of JULIO GRONDONA. Segura, who has left his post as chairman of relegated Argentinos Juniors to take charge of the AFA, said that he would be talking with GERARDO MARTINO "to take over the national team" after World Cup coach ALEJANDRO SABELLA stood down (REUTERS, 8/6). ... PATRICE NEVEU "became the third coaching casualty since last weekend's African Nations Cup qualifiers after he was fired by Mauritania on Wednesday." Neveu had been coach since Feb. '12. His departure follows Sunday’s immediate sacking of ADEL AMROUCHE by Kenya after "they were dumped out of the competition" and Wednesday’s announcement by Zimbabwe coach IAN GOROWA that "he is to depart his job" (REUTERS, 8/6).
