Significant VRC Board & Executive Announcements
In an unusual year filled with uncertainty, where the VRC board has been heavily engaged in guiding the club through COVID-19 and focusing on the challenges it faces, as well as on emerging opportunities within the framework of its future strategic direction, the following has been announced:
- The appointment of three new VRC Directors following an extensive process that considered a list of highly credentialed candidates. The three new directors, who will assume their roles in June, are Dave Barham, Vin Cox and Michael Saadie.
- The appointment of the new VRC Chief Executive Officer. Boasting extensive management experience in the field of sports management, Steve Rosich will become the Club’s thirteenth CEO after a transition period that starts in September and concludes in November post Cup week.
- The transition of the current VRC Chief Executive Officer to Chairman. It is intended that incumbent chief executive Neil Wilson will become the twenty-second Chairman of the VRC in November 2020. Within the context of a need to remain flexible during the COVID-19 crisis, and in the best interests of the club, the VRC Board has extended the time of Amanda Elliott and Neil Wilson, in their respective roles of Chairman and CEO, until after Cup Week this year.
