ICF has found its Secretary General

Back to the roots. The International Canoe and Kayak Federation (ICF) has just recruited a Secretary General. Richard Pettit, 42 years old, is no stranger to the discipline, as he was for a long time the ICF’s director of media and communications. The Briton left to join the IOC in Lausanne, where he worked for five years on the Athlete365 programme. According to an ICF press release, Richard Pettit has, in addition to his knowledge of communications, a strong background in digital transformation, partnership and development.
