Charissa Tynan who has been part of IFMA since 2005 and has been the IFMA Director since 2014 now has been unanimously voted and confirmed by the IFMA Executives to assume the position as Executive Director.
Ms. Tynan thanked the IFMA Executive for their trust. Ms. Tynan has been an imperative part of the IFMA development and thanked the Executives for their trust and promised to continue to serve IFMA and the athletes, the heart and soul of the federation and art and sport of muaythai.
Stephan Fox stated that with this gradual change, he will have more time in his function as AIMS and United Through Sports President especially after his re-election as AIMS President for another 4 years.
