Dennis Chung to be named new JFF Gen Sec
DENNIS CHUNG

The Jamaica Observer has been reliably informed that respected senior financial executive Dennis Chung will replace Dalton Wint as general secretary of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).

Chung, a former president of the Jamaica Cycling Federation could not confirm the appointment when contacted late on Monday but, according to information from well-placed sources, the chartered accountant will take office in the coming days, bringing an end to the controversy-filled tenure of Wint, who was forced out of the post after a string of controversial incidents and run ins with players.

Chung is no stranger to the Jamaica Football Federation having been appointed in 2020 as chairman of the association’s Finance Committee.

He brings immense management and structural experience to the position as a former CEO of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica and having held influential positions in a number of top local organisations such as JMMB, the National Solid Waste Management Agency, Petrojam and the National Integrity Action. He is a past president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Jamaica.

Chung recently resigned his post as Chief Executive Officer of Supreme Ventures Limited, effective October 31.

Wint’s position with the JFF became untenable after members of the national men’s senior football team refused to play for the country until he was removed from the post following a number of issues including an alleged mismanagement of travel arrangements for a Concacaf Nations League match against Suriname in June

Though the embattled administrator eventually gave a verbal commitment to quit, it is not yet clear if that resignation has been delivered to the JFF to date.
