Following the recent statement from president of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Michael Ricketts that the appointment of a new general secretary is imminent, The Gleaner can reveal that Dennis Chung is the man being eyed.

Chung, a chartered accountant and current chairman of the JFF’s Finance Committee, was selected by a small leadership core of the JFF on the weekend to succeed Dalton Wint, who indicated in June that he would resign providing certain conditions were met.

Interestingly, Chung, also a highly regarded financial and social commentator, steps away from his position as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at Supreme Ventures. Chung’s resignation becomes effective October 31.

Ricketts, who was quoted in The Sunday Gleaner saying: “There will be a new general secretary in a few days, but I can’t speak on that publicly yet,” could not be reached for comment earlier today as his phone went unanswered,

The Gleaner did manage to contact Chung, who would not comment on the matter at this stage.

According to Chung: “We know football needs help and I have been helping as Chairman of the Finance Committee. We have made significant strides but there are still some challenges.”

Chung has held leadership positions at the Jamaica Money Market Brokers (JMMB) and the Private Sector Organization of Jamaica (PSOJ).

Currently, he serves as Chairman of the National Solid Waste Management Agency (NSWMA), as board director and chairman of GK Capital’s Audit Committee member and is a past president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Jamaica (ICAJ). He is also a Justice of the Peace and has authored two books.
