Secretary General, Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS)
Sarah is a native of France. She moved to Switzerland three and a half years ago to work at SportAccord as Integrity Officer. Since September 1st 2015, she joined the Lotteries as GLMS Secretary General and WLA* Security Certification Manager.
Prior to moving to Lausanne in 2012, Sarah worked during three years in a research and higher education Institute based in Paris, named IRIS*, specialised in geopolitics, security and defense stakes. She was responsible for developing a research department on issues related to the internationalisation of sport and headed up in parallel the "International Relations" basic education diploma of the Institute.
At SportAccord, Sarah was responsible for the implementation of strategy and tools related to the growing scourge of match-fixing in sport. She was also following up on public affairs surrounding international fora such as the United Nations agencies and other key institutional organisations (Council of Europe/EPAS, European Union, etc.). Interested in sports public policies, her scope of monitoring included sport development, sport regulation and sport governance issues.
Now that she joined the Lotteries a few weeks ago, Sarah is responsible for the development of the recently created association GLMS (Global Lottery Monitoring System). This cooperation platform aims at sharing information on sports betting fraud concerns among its lottery members and liaise with all interested parties in the fight against the manipulation of sports competitions.
Sarah has been following up on Play The Game activities since she started to get involved in sport issues back in 2009 at IRIS. She further got acquainted to PTG through her involvement in the EPAS* Consultative Committee, which she chairs since May 2014. She will be replaced in that role in an election taking place on Tuesday the 27th of October in the wings of PTG Conference 2015.
