The Board of the New South Wales Harness Racing Club met yesterday and decided to offer the position of Chief Executive Officer to Mr Bruce Christison.
The Board is delighted to announce that Mr Chistison has accepted this position effective from today.
Mr Christison first joined the administrative staff of the Club in January 1994 as Financial Controller, and has been the Business Operations Manager since March 2004.
Mr Christison has been an integral part of the Club’s management for many years and will bring extensive business and administrative skills combined with a detailed knowledge of the Club’s operations to the position of Chief Executive.
The Board believes that this appointment will continue the development of the Club following the sale of Harold Park and development at Tabcorp Park Menangle.
Mr Christison will work with departing Chief Executive Officer Mr John Dumesny to ensure a seamless handover before Mr Dumesny assumes his position with Harness Racing New South Wales on 1 September 2014. The Board believes that this transitional process will be of mutual benefit to all parties and the industry.
