MCG Trust appoints new chair

Mar 10, 2014

MCG Trust chairman Bob HerbertLong-time trustee Bob Herbert AM has been appointed as chairman of the MCG Trust, having acted in the role since John Wylie’s retirement almost 12 months ago. His term as chairman will expire in May, 2016.

A trustee since 2003, Herbert was the former CEO of Australian Industry Group and is now involved in various company director and advisory roles.

He is chairman of trackSAFE Foundation, deputy chairman of Industry Capability Network Limited and has been a non-executive director of Skilled for 11 years.

The Victorian Government also confirmed the appointment of Dale Monteith to the MCG Trust on a three-year term.

Monteith brings with him a wealth of experience in the racing and events industry, having worked at Melbourne Racing Club for 24 years (including nine years as CEO) and most recently served Victoria Racing Club for 12 years as its chief executive.

Monteith joins chairman Herbert, Peter Costello, Ian Carson, Jane Fenton, Kate Palmer, Pat McNamara and Tony Stewart on the eight-person Trust that oversees the Melbourne Cricket Club’s management of the stadium.

WHETHER by accident or design, in-form Steve Smith is a product of Michael Clarke’s captaincy and Australian cricket is better for it.
