Thomas Kurth is the new secretary general of UIM, the world powerboating association

During their last General Assembly in Ibiza, the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) have just appointed the Swiss Thomas Kurth as its new Secretary General.

He joined UIM as Special Commissioner in July 2014, and has been in charge of staff and operations at the UIM Headquarters in Monaco since then.
Thomas Kurth brings with him sound experience and understanding of International Federations, having been Head of Competitions at the European Football Union UEFA for ten years, prior to setting up and heading for eight years the G14 Grouping of major European Football Clubs. He has also worked as an independent consultant in the international Sport industry dealing with Sport Federations’ governance issues at large, competition organization, project & event management as well as strategic advice.

UIM President Raffaele Chiulli said:

“I am delighted to welcome Thomas Kurth as our new Secretary General. In the few months he has been conducting the affairs of the UIM Office as a Commissioner he has achieved excellent results. His leadership and extensive skillset will be an asset for UIM and its Head Office on our way to take this Federation to greater heights.”

On his side, the new UIM Secretary General Kurth declared:

“I am looking forward to leading the UIM staff and the Federation’s operations and will spare no efforts in offering the Powerboating Community the quality services they expect and deserve”.

Sure a big task for Mr. Kurth as he has to continue and improve the guidelines of UIM towards a powerboating that needs to be greener, more affordable and more close to the public.
