Melbourne Racing Club announce new CEO
Alasdair Robertson has been appointed chief executive officer of the Melbourne Racing Club (MRC), effective mid-January.
Robertson, 53, is currently CEO of the Western Australian Turf Club operating under the brand Perth Racing and has held that position since 2004.
He was selected by the committee of the MRC from an impressive list of candidates.
Perth Racing was reinvigorated under Robertson’s direction with a resulting significant increase in on-course attendance, membership, wagering growth and prizemoney distributed to owners.
He will replace current CEO Warran Brown who is contracted to the MRC until December 31
