Tasracing appoints new director

Thursday 22 September 2016

Tasracing has appointed Michael Gordon to its Board of Directors.

Mr Gordon, nominated by a greyhound owner, has bred, owned and raced greyhounds.  He also has a long standing association with the harness and thoroughbred codes, both as a participant and committee member.

Mr Gordon is a Director of PDF Management Services, a management consulting firm based in Hobart.  He has a broad and diverse career, across the training, employment and youth sectors, 14 years with Fire Services in Tasmania and South Australia and as a small business owner and operator.

He holds a Bachelor of Business from the University of South Australia and is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

“We welcome Michael to the Tasracing Board,” Chairman Dean Cooper said.

“His diverse industry experience across all three codes will be valuable as we commence our 2020 and beyond initiatives, and grow the racing industry in Tasmania.”

Mr Gordon fills the vacant board position which was created following the resignation of Justin Crawford in February 2016.
