WADA Appoints Director of International Federations and European Regional Office

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jean-Pierre Moser to the position of Director of International Federations and European Regional Office.

A Swiss national, Mr. Moser has spent the last nine years with FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme) and currently serves as the organization’s Financial Director. He holds an Executive Master degree in Sports Organization Management and has dedicated his career to working in an international environment. Mr. Moser will take on his new role with WADA in early 2006 and will be based in the European Regional Office located in Lausanne, Switzerland.

WADA is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, and has three regional offices serving Europe (Lausanne, Switzerland), Asia/Oceania (Tokyo, Japan), and Africa (Cape Town, South Africa). Regional offices are a key element to WADA’s fight against doping in sport, increasing understanding and facilitating implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code (Code). The offices carry out a number of duties in conjunction with the staff in Montreal, aimed at promoting a doping-free culture in sport. Roles and responsibilities include liaising with stakeholders in their respective regions, actively promoting WADA and its mission, providing information to the media and public on doping issues, and coordinating projects relating to education, communications, and Code implementation.

WADA is the international independent organization created in 1999 to promote, coordinate, and monitor the fight against doping in sport in all its forms.
