Netball Victoria appoints new Directors


Netball Victoria has announced the appointment of three new Board Directors – Rob Muir, Miriam Slattery and Marc Giglio.

A nomination committee was established and sought out expressions of interest in July this year. A comprehensive selection process ensued with the three preferred candidates presented to the Board for ratification during August’s Board meeting.

Netball Victoria President, Richelle McKenzie welcomed the three new Directors to the Netball Victoria family.

“We are thrilled to welcome Rob, Miriam and Marc to the Netball Victoria Board,” said McKenzie.

“Their professional expertise in their respective areas will be invaluable to the strategic direction we are taking for netball in Victoria, in particular the future growth areas identified, including male participation.

“As we look to finalise Netball Victoria’s strategic plan for 2019-2023, we look forward to their contribution to help maintain netball at the forefront of the rise in women’s sport.”

All three Directors begin their tenure from Monday, 10 September 2018.
