Webb, who was elected last month at the FIFA Congress in Budapest, said it was important for the growth and development of young regional footballers that they interacted with those who had made it to the top of the sport.
â€śWhich child wouldnâ€™t want to see Lionel Messi in the flesh?Â Seeing these superstars gives confidence and the will to know, I too can be great, I too can achieve greatness,â€ť Webb said.
â€śThis is our new mandate at CONCACAF; helping young footballers believe in their abilities and achieve greatness. We are focusing on the game and its players, not the politics.â€ť
A 47-year-old banker and head of the Cayman Islands FA, Webb was elected unopposed to serve the term left vacant by the resignation of Trinidadian Jack Warner.
He is currently deputy Chairman of FIFAâ€™s Internal Audit Committee and also sits on the FIFA Transparency and Compliance Committee.
Webb is also chairman of CONCACAFâ€™s Youth Committee and carried out duties as chairman of the Caribbean Football Unionâ€™s Normalization Committee to oversee the turbulent period in regional football following the cash-for-votes scandal last year.
He has since been voted onto FIFAâ€™s powerful Executive Committee.
Webb made the rounds earlier this month in his new role, as he witnessed several qualifying matches in the 2014 World Cup campaign. He was particularly confident about Jamaica Reggae Boyzâ€™ campaign, after they opened with an impressive 2-1 win over Guatemala at the National Stadium in Kingston.
