Tabcorp Appoints Former AFL Boss Gillon McLachlan as New CEO

Australian gambling services firm Tabcorp Holdings has appointed former Australian Football League (AFL) chief Gillon McLachlan as its new chief executive and managing director. This strategic move comes amid heightened competition and as Tabcorp undergoes a significant transformation.

McLachlan’s appointment follows the resignation of former chief Adam Rytenskild, who stepped down over allegations of using “offensive” and “inappropriate” language in the workplace. McLachlan, who served as AFL’s chief executive for a decade, is credited with significant revenue growth and expansion during his tenure.

He will join Tabcorp on August 5 and will assume his new roles after receiving regulatory approvals. His annual fixed remuneration is set at AU$ 1.5 million.

Driving Growth and Innovation

Tabcorp Executive Chairman Bruce Akhurst expressed enthusiasm about McLachlan’s appointment. “In the two years since demerger, we have significantly improved our customer offering and delivered key structural reforms in Queensland and Victoria,” Akhurst stated.

“Gill brings an added dimension of having been responsible for some of the most significant media rights deals in Australian sports history, and we’re excited about the potential growth opportunities for our wagering and media business under his leadership,” Akhurst added.
