Upcoming Catholics in Business Networking Breakfast
Mr Brendon Gale, CEO Richmond Football Club
Catholics in Business welcomes the Richmond Football Club CEO, Mr Brendon Gale, one of Australia’s most influential sports administrators and former player of the Australian Football League.
The Richmond Football Club competes in Australia’s largest elite sporting competition – the AFL, and as CEO, Brendon leads a diverse team of over 130 people.
In his “previous life”, Brendon played 244 games of AFL football between 1990 and 2001 with the Richmond Football Club (“RFC”); captaining and vice-captaining the club between 1994 and 1997.
Upon retirement from professional football, Brendon practiced law with a leading Melbourne commercial law firm in the general commercial and banking and finance areas.
In January 2005, Brendon was appointed CEO of the AFL Players Association and as CEO, was responsible for representing the collective industrial interests of all AFL players. During his time Brendon completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School where his business, leadership and strategic skills were finely tuned.
Brendon was appointed CEO of the Richmond Football Club in September 2009.
Brendon is a highly accomplished sportsman and businessman who navigates a highly competitive, heavily scrutinised and demanding environment on a daily basis. He has incredible leadership and relationship management skills, and a drive to succeed in anything he puts his mind to.
Brendon has a wealth of experience to share with Melbourne’s business elite.
This will be a unique opportunity to hear from one of our leading sporting administrators during the height of the AFL season. It will also be a chance to enjoy an early start, scrumptious breakfast and to share perspectives with colleagues and new friends in an environment of shared values and concerns – an inspirational experience with networking at its best!
