Alejandro Dominguez was born on 25 January 1972, the son of Osvaldo Domínguez Dibb, a wealthy businessman and football administrator, and Peggy Wilson-Smith.
Dominguez was elected president of CONMEBOL in January 2016. He was the only candidate, after Wilmar Valdez of Uruguay withdrew, and was elected unanimously.
Dominguez succeeded his close friend, fellow Paraguayan Juan Ángel Napout, who was arrested in Switzerland in December 2015 and extradited to the US. All three previous CONMEBOL presidents are facing US indictments for corruption.
