Dear Skating Friends,
Herewith I would like to announce my candidacy for the position of ISU President. The ISU has been my home and passion for many years. My love of skating has motivated me to work hard for the ISU family and stakeholders to promote and develop the sport worldwide. I am excited for the future of figure skating, short track speed skating and speed skating on all its levels. I hope that I may continue showing my leadership.
As ISU President, the key themes of Inspiration & Innovation would be central throughout my tenure. I hope to inspire the skating community, helping to innovate and evolve the ISU and Member Federations, while never forgetting the solid foundation that has already been laid. Guided by these principles, I will focus on three strategic pillars:
• Marketing, Promotion & Digitalization
• Good Governance
Please see attached my manifesto which clearly describes the objectives and strategies that I would employ.
We all have an important role to play – whether Member, Office Holder, Athlete, Official, Coach or Partner.
Together we can build on the hard work of the last years and carve a strong future for skating and the ISU.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
