New CEO for Racing Victoria
Former NSW cricket boss Andrew Jones has been appointed Racing Victoria’s new CEO. Jones will replace current CEO Giles Thompson after he announced in January he would be leaving the organisation. Jones is currently the interim Netball Australia CEO and will begin his new role on July 11.
He is currently on the board of the Victorian Thoroughbred Integrated Media Business and had previously been interim CEO of Racing.com. “Andrew will join Racing Victoria with a wealth of business, strategy and sports administration experience coupled with a unique understanding of the VTRIMB thanks to his advisory work in our media business and his time as Interim Chief Executive of Racing. com last year,” RV Chairman Brian Kruger said.
“The Victorian Thoroughbred Racing Industry has experienced outstanding growth and investment during Giles’ tenure and we are confident the sport will continue to thrive and prosper under the leadership of Andrew in the years to come.
