10 MESSAGES
“A recurring theme during discussions
at our annual commission meetings
was that “Technology does not drive
change – it enables change”. The FIVB
is on the cusp of a new era as we now
begin the work of making our sport,
and the way we bring our volleyball
to our audiences, more appealing and
dynamic for today’s generation.”

“It is with an enormous sense of
pride that I address you for the first
time in these pages as President of
the FIVB. We have come a long
way since we began, and it is my
avowed intention to ensure that
volleyball and beach volleyball not
only stay in touch with the ever-
changing world in which we live
today, but offer a beacon of hope
and joy to players and spectators
everywhere.
“Under our leadership the FIVB
will become even more efficient,
more dynamic, and more modern
in its outlook. For me it is a great
honour and at the same time a great
opportunity to grow the sport of
volleyball around the world, taking
it into schools and boosting its profile,
and I am proud to be able to lead it
into this new era.
“There has been significant change
within the organisation over the

The new FIVB organisational
structure, by Deloitte
past four years under my predecessor,
Honorary FIVB President Jizhong Wei,
and I would now like to take the
baton and run with it, with a great
sense of purpose for the benefit
of volleyball. The three previous
Presidents all did a tremendous job for
volleyball, and we would not be in the
position we are today without them.”
