Born in 1944 in Bettembourg, Luxembourg, André Meyer assumed the Presidency of the
European Volleyball Confederation back in 2001 as the General Assembly was held
in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
After chairing the Luxembourgian Volleyball Federation
for 17 years and the European Refereeing Commission for about a decade, Mr. Meyer
was sworn in to lead the European Volleyball family thereby significantly contributing
to the massive development of this sport in the “Old Continent”.
After his re-election
in 2005, Mr. Meyer continued his work for the CEV combining his presidential function
with more and more tasks assigned by the FIVB, where he is serving as Executive
Vice President, Treasurer and President of the Steering Committee especially created
for managing the FIVB Development Fund. Mr. Meyer is a former Volleyball player
and international referee who whistled a total of 178 international matches, including
games taking place for the European Cups, the European Championships and World Championships.
This past September 17, 2011, Mr. Meyer was re-elected for a third consecutive mandate – a real premiere in the history of the European Volleyball Confederation – spanning through 2011-2015.
