Leading sports and racing administrator Greg Miller will join the board of Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV). Minister for Racing Martin Pakula congratulated Mr Miller on his appointment to the board, where he will serve as deputy chair.
Mr Miller brings a wealth of experience to the role.
He has been chief executive of Sandown Greyhound Racing Club since 2010, building the club’s reputation and hosting one of the biggest greyhound racing events in Australia each year – the Melbourne Cup.
He will step down from that role at the end of the month.
Prior to his time at Sandown, Mr Miller held executive positions with the Richmond and North Melbourne football clubs and earlier in his football administration career, he helped to oversee the move of South Melbourne FC to Sydney.
The greyhound racing industry generates $500 million for the Victorian economy each year and sustains more than 4,300 full-time-equivalent jobs.
Mr Miller’s appointment to the GRV board and as deputy chair is effective from 1 January.
“Greg will bring great expertise and knowledge to the board of Greyhound Racing Victoria,” Mr Pakula said.
“His passion for racing and sport generally, and his experience in working as a leader in the greyhound racing industry, will be a real asset.”
Greyhound Racing Victoria Chair Peita Duncan said: “Greg has done a tremendous job for Sandown and the wider industry as an executive, and I know he will continue to contribute in a major way now as a board member.”
Greyhound Racing Victoria incoming deputy chair Greg Miller said: “I’m excited to be joining the board at this key stage in the industry’s evolution and look forward to working with the other board members to further develop greyhound racing in Victoria.”
