Parramatta Leagues Club (PLC) has today announced the appointment of Chris Dimou as it’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
The PLC Board commenced a rigorous search for a CEO earlier this year.
Chris’s extensive industry experience and his recent role as interim CEO made him the best candidate to lead our Club into the future.
Importantly, Chris has a very strong commitment to you, our Members, and will drive our shared Vision of maximizing our experiences for Members and the community we live in.
With 20 years’ experience in the industry, Chris has displayed a great passion for Parramatta Leagues Club. In his recent role as Chief Operating Officer, Chris made major contributions to key initiatives at the PLC including the multi-million dollar development of the carpark, the refresh of the Vikings Club and implementation of our COVID safe plans which saw the Club as an industry leader in its response to COVID-19.
Chris Dimou said, “I am very honoured to be named CEO of our great Club and want to thank Greg and the Board for their support.
“Like everyone else, we have certainly felt the effects of the global pandemic, and while the last few months have been challenging, our Club can play major role in the recovery of our region both economically and socially.
“The strategic plan developed last year is a great launchpad for our Club and I am excited to lead our team in rolling those initiatives out starting with the exciting new Eels Lane bar and grill next year. Even though the Club is closed, we are still working hard to make these plans a reality.
“I am also looking forward to working closely with the Eels and supporting them as they continue to grow”, he said.
At this time, we do not know when Chris will be able to open the doors of Parra Leagues and Vikings, although as vaccination levels in the community rise, that day is most certainly getting closer. All indications from Government are that vaccinated staff and patrons will have fewer restrictions.
The Directors and staff led by Chris look eagerly forward to welcoming you back into a safe and enjoyable environment as soon as we can. We encourage you to follow Government and Medical advice regarding restrictions and vaccinations so that we can re-open as soon as possible.
Stay safe, and meanwhile….
President Parra Leagues
On behalf of Directors:
Darren Adam, Sue Coleman, Joy Cusack, Richard Foda, Mark Jenkins and Phil Sim.
