Walter Sieber

A world-renown expert in the organization of major sport events, Walter Sieber was vice-president of the COC from 1985 to 2009. He currently sits on the board of the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

As director general of sports for the Montreal 1976 Olympic Games, Sieber led the overall organization, venues, sport competitions, and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Those Games are credited with being meticulously organized and Sieber’s efforts were lauded by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Following the Games, Sieber became the Director of la Régie des installations olympiques de Montréal, the board responsible for operating Canada Olympic Park. Soon after, Sieber was invited to be an advisor for the organizing committees of the Moscow 1980 Olympic Games and the Seoul 1988 Olympic Games. Sieber was a board member for the Calgary 1988 Olympic Winter Games. Four years later he was appointed Canada’s Chef de Mission for the Olympic Winter Games in Albertville.

In 2000, Sieber was appointed by the IOC’s Program Commission to study and provide recommendations on the Olympic sport program. Since 2004, he has been a member of the IOC’s prestigious Candidature Acceptance Working Group. This group reviews and analyzes Olympic bids, prepares reports on candidate cities and makes recommendations to the IOC Executive Board.

Sieber has been involved in all Canadian Olympic since 1980. He was vice-president of sports for the Toronto 1996 and Quebec City 2002 Olympic bids.

Outside his Olympic involvement, Sieber is recognized as a leading authority on the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), for which he has managed many World Cups and World Championships over the past two decades.
