(ATR) Among the field of five losing candidates for the IOC presidency, Singapore IOC member Ser Miang Ng seems best positioned to play a leading role in the administration of the victorious Thomas Bach.
Ng chaired the December meeting of the IOC Finance Commission, formerly headed by Richard Carrion, who resigned the post after losing the presidential vote.
Ng, a businessman and diplomat by profession, could well be in line to take over this prestigious commission, which handles the IOC purse. And if not this commission, look for Ng to take another plum post.
Elected to the IOC in 1995, Ng stepped off the Executive Board this year after serving two terms, this last one as a vice president. He’ll turn 64 in 2014.
