Meet the Bora Milutinovic of Singapore Sports

Steady lah, Steven Yeo.

From former deputy chief executive officer of the Singapore Sports Council (2000-05) and concurrent Singapore Badminton Association secretary-general (2002-06) to Football Association of Singapore secretary-general (2008-09) and now the Singapore Athletics Association’s top choice for its next chief executive officer.

At the rate Yeo is helming all the national sports associations,  he can truly be called the Bora Milutinovic of Singapore sports:

*******************

Yeo could be athletics chief (TODAY, 16 June 2009)

THE Singapore Athletic Association (SAA) have sought the Singapore Sports Council’s (SSC) approval to appoint Steven Yeo as their chief executive officer.

The position became vacant when Christina Tay resigned on Jan 15 after controversy over the late submission of budget, training and development plans to the SSC for the financial year 2009.

Yeo, 48, is no stranger to Singapore sports as he was deputy CEO of the SSC from 2000 to 2005. He was the secretary-general of the Singapore Badminton Association from 2002 to 2006.

He was named Football Association of Singapore general secretary in 2007.

He resigned after a year to become Singapore Flyer general manager, but left after the huge controversy over the six-hour wheel stoppage on Dec 23 last year.

Yeo resigned a little over a week later, but did not have to serve out notice because the board of the Singapore Flyer asked him to leave immediately.
