David Whimpey to step down as BRC boss

BRISBANE Apr 2 2019

The Brisbane Racing Club's chief executive David Whimpey has announced he will step down after more than five years in the role.

Whimpey said he had achieved the goals he sought including unlocking a Strategic Plan, and he now wanted to spend more time with his young family and to seek new opportunities.

He will finish his role on June 30 and the BRC expects to recruit Australia-wide to fill his position.

BRC chairman Neville Bell said during Whimpey's tenure, the BRC has begun to roll out its master plan which is transforming the racing club into one of the most innovative and diverse sporting precincts in Australia.

"Over the last five years, the BRC has dealt with serious challenges around the redevelopment of the Eagle Farm racecourse, which required strong leadership to ensure the club preserved all jobs and met revenue targets despite the absence of our leading track," Bell said.

"In Whimpey's final year the BRC is enjoying another strong result with the return of Eagle Farm to the racing calendar."
