MRC Announces CEO Succession Plan
The Melbourne Racing Club (MRC) yesterday announced that Josh Blanksby will become its new CEO effective 15 December as part of a succession plan at the club. Mr Blanksby will replace Brodie Arnhold who has spent just under five years as CEO and ten years in total with the MRC. "Within Brodie's tenure, first as Committeeman then as CEO, the MRC has implemented a strategy to firmly put the club on a pathway to a more financially sustainable and exciting future. To that end I'd like to acknowledge and congratulate Brodie for his outstanding contribution," said MRC chairman, Mike Symons. "Josh is well qualified to now further progress that strategy as our next chief executive. He has been with the MRC for more than three years and has successfully achieved every task asked of him by the Committee, working effectively with the entire racing industry and our key stakeholders like the State Government." Mr Blanksby is currently Executive Director of Racing & Corporate Affairs at the MRC.
