Manly appoint their new CEO

With former CEO Graham Lowe forced to resign from the position, the Manly Sea Eagles have appointed St George official David Perry, as their new CEO.

Perry will replace Lowe next month, who has been forced to resign from the position, due to his ill health.

Perry brings experience into the role, having been the Dragons executive manager for some time now, and the Sea Eagles are pleased to have him on board.

“David will bring a wealth of experience in sales and marketing to the club,” Sea Eagles chairman Scott Penn said in a club statement.

“He has achieved excellent results in his three years at St George Illawarra as team leader of the club’s successful commercial sales team.

“His commercial ability, on top of a lifelong involvement as a player, coach and, more recently, as a senior executive in rugby league, gives him the ideal background for a vital management role at the Sea Eagles.”

Perry is looking forward to his new role, and the challenges that it will bring.

“I have played league in the Manly A-grade competition and know what the Sea Eagles mean to the people of the peninsula.

“It is an iconic brand in the game and I’m excited to be joining the club at a period where the future looks very bright.

“The club has been a permanent fixture in finals football under coach Des Hasler and I look forward to that continuing.”
