[CONCACAF]Concacaf announced today that its general secretary, 39-year-old Enrique Sanz, will be undergoing treatment for leukemia.
The Colombian-born Sanz was appointed Concacaf's general secretary in 2012, replacing acting general secretary, Ted Howard, who had been in this interim role following the resignation of longtime general secretary Chuck Blazer.

Sanz had been vice president of South American soccer marketing agency Traffic Sports USA, heading the Concacaf region since 2005.
Concacaf asked that everyone respected Sanz and his family’s wishes for privacy.
