Gianni Infantino (born 23 March 1970 in Brig, Switzerland[1]) is the current UEFA General Secretary, a position he has occupied since 2009. He was the interim UEFA Chief Executive during 2007. He is of Italian origin. He was only in charge until SFA Chief Executive David Taylor officially took over on 31 March 2007. He is currently UEFA general-secretary. Infantino stated on August 12, 2010 "There is still a lot to do", but he had "full confidence and trust and I'm very optimistic on the success of the Euro 2012 in Ukraine",[2] and called for UEFA to take tough action in the wake of the 2009 European football betting scandal.[3]
