ZURICH/NEW YORK: FIFA, facing the worst image crisis in even its own history, has retained corporate advisory and strategic communications firm Teneo Holdings.

The embattled governing body, in turmoil after the fallout from arrests of senior officials on corruption charges, ‘lost’ its own director of communications, Walter De Gregorio, in June.

He quit after differences of opinion with president Sepp Blatter after to be replaced on a temporary basis by Nicolas Maingot.

New York-based Teneo Holdings was founded in 2011 and is led by former Nike brand president Charlie Denson. The company’s president, Doug Band, was a special advisor to former US president Bill Clinton and was a director of the US’ bid for the 2022 Fifa World Cup.

Teneo Sports co-president Terrence Burns is a bid communications and strategy specialist. His former company, Helios Partners, worked on the successful Russian bid for the 2018 Fifa World Cup.
