Tabcorp has appointed a new Non-Executive Director to its board, David Gallop.
David is known for his high-profile position as CEO of the National Rugby League, which he held for a decade. In 2012, he took the same job at Football Federation Australia were he remains until the year’s end.
“David has successfully led two of Australia’s highest profile sporting organisations in the NRL and FFA,” Tabcorp’s Chairman, Paula Dwyer, said.
“He brings to our Board a deep understanding of sports administration and the commercial drivers which underpin it,” Paula explained.
The Chairman added that David has “extensive experience in media rights negotiations, delivering modern sporting content throughout digital channels, customer experience and in navigating complex stakeholder relationships at domestic and international level.”
Regulatory and ministerial approval is still required to make the position official. Tabcorp advised in the meantime, David will act as an observer on the board from October 14.
Tabcorp informed the market that David’s appointment to the board is one step in a restructure plan. It expects more appointments will follow during the 2020 financial year.
These appointments are in anticipation of Paula and Non-Executive Director Dr Zygmunt Switkowski’s retirement from the board.
Tabcorp’s share price is up 1.04 per cent today, currently sitting at $4.97 apiece, as of 3:16 pm AEDT.
