Raghuram Iyer Appointed as CEO of Indian Olympic Association

On January 5, 2024, it was announced that Mr Raghuram Iyer was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA). This selection was made by the Nomination Committee through a unanimous decision.

IOA President, Dr PT Usha stated that Mr Iyer “brings a unique combination of leadership, strategic vision, and a deep understanding of the sports landscape. His appointment is a significant step towards the continued growth and success of Indian sports on the global stage“.

It is interesting to note that the CEO was appointed over a year after the IOA council took charge (in December 2022). Further, multiple reminders were sent by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which directed the IOA to appoint a CEO as per its constitution without further delays.
