Manly to formally announce their new CEO at 5.30pm
source: various twitters including Dean Ritchie.
that was quick
maybe Lowe has made major improvements and the HQ team have been able to work quiter and quicker than last time.
I was down at Narrabeen (live nearby) for a short time around lunchtime , and was watching the boys train.
Russell Fairfax & the Fox crew were setting up as I left.
bet we will all say WHO ?
Thats good but I would rather read "Hoppa signs with Manly for 4 Years"
I COULD tell you who it is....but I don't actually know, so won't.
Meanwhile, Manly has appointed Dragons official David Perry to eventual take up Graham Loweâ€™s CEO position.
Perry is currently the executive manager of partnership at Kogarah and will take up a position as Chief Operating Officer next month.
â€˜â€˜I am acutely aware of the responsibilities that come from such a respected club and brand,â€™â€™ he said on Thursday..
â€˜â€˜I am genuinely excited about my new challenge in an area I have great passion for.â€
Or more likely Max Delmege is not involved in the process this time around.
Or maybe the club has been planning this for a long time.
Well whatever, it's a damned sight better than the night of long knives that dispatched Mayer.
All the best to him. Anyone heard much about him besides the info posted earlier?
Yes its been almost seemless. Well done to all concerned.
ps private ownership is the opposite of the checks and balances that come with democracy. Problems can arise... just ask Souths fans!
From what i know of him, he is a very professional but down to earth guy. he will come on as COO (chief operating officer) for 2 months until lowe officially steps down and his primary role will be to find sponsors, namely a major sponsor which is what he was very good at during his time at the dragons.
Read on Manly's twitter he's actually our COO
Didn't he join the Dragons in 08? They have had the same sponsors since then, well at least jersey ones from memory. Anyway he is only early 40's and has had exposure in the game and is looking to step up and is probably keen to prove himself. Sounds good.
Is executive manager of partnership a fancy name for sponsorship manager ?
half the battle would also be renegotiating with existing sponsors to better their sponsorships or just to keep them on and im sure for manly there would be quite a few up for renewal end of this year from those gained in the g. mayer era
Separate names with a comma.
