The Board of Greyhound Racing SA (GRSA) has announced the appointment of Ben Kavenagh (pictured) to fill the role recently left vacant by former Director Grahame Marshall.
And GRSA Chairman, Grantley Stevens, in speaking on the extent to which Kavenagh’s sports management experience would be a welcome addition to the organisation, said the Directors were looking forward to him joining GRSA in this role.
“His strong sports management background as well as his previous involvement with the greyhound racing industry will make him a valuable asset to GRSA,” he said.
Kavenagh has had direct experience with greyhound racing, having worked for Greyhound Racing Victoria in the early years of his career.
Since then he has worked in CEO and general management roles with leading SA sports organisations including the South Adelaide Football Club, Glenelg Golf Club, Adelaide Lightning and more recently the Adelaide 36ers.
Kavenagh said he was extremely excited to be joining the Board at this key stage in the industry’s evolution.
“I look forward to working with the other Board members and collaborating with owners, breeders, trainers, officials and volunteers to further develop the sport in SA.”
