After a lengthy search to find a new CEO, the North Queensland Cowboys have their man, with Greg Tonner appointed as the club’s new CEO.
Seeking someone with the right skills and experience was important for the club and Chairman Laurence Lancini believes that Tonner was the guy for the role.
â€œChairman Laurence Lancini confirmed the former North Queensland local, who has extensive experience in sales and commercial roles nationally and internationally, would be a wonderful asset to the club,” said Lancini.
â€œWe conducted an extensive search to find the right person and considered some truly outstanding candidates. We believe Greg, with his professional background and family connection to North Queensland, is the right person for the job.â€
â€œWe are delighted he is coming aboard.”
Townsville is not a foreign area for the new CEO, as Tonner will take over the CEO role mid-season once his current employment commitments are complete and he is excited at the new role ahead of him.
â€œItâ€™s a privilege to work for the Cowboys. Iâ€™m incredibly enthusiastic about strengthening ties to this fantastic club right across the north, and helping the club get to the next level,” said Tonner.
