Executive summary: 8th FIFA President

President of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), soccer's governing body, from 1998-2015. Under his leadership, FIFA became almost synonymous with corruption. After several of his colleagues had been indicted, he announced his resignation on 2 June 2015, but pledged to continue as President until his successor is elected -- a process which could take months. In October of 2015, he received a "provisional" 90-day suspension issued by FIFA's Ethics Committee.
