Basketball Australia has announced respected sports administrator Anthony Moore as the organisation’s new Chief Executive.

Moore, who will take up the position on 13th October, is currently the General Manager of Participation and Sustainable Sports at the Australian Sports Commission and has worked for elite sporting organisations for more than 20 years, including the NBA, Cricket Australia and AFL clubs.

Basketball Australia Chair Scott Derwin, who sat on the appointment committee following an exhaustive recruitment search, said the Board was extremely pleased with the calibre and volume of quality candidates who put themselves forward for the role.

Derwin explained “Basketball Australia received more than 130 applicants for the position of Chief Executive Officer – a ringing endorsement of the direction in which our sport is heading.

“Ultimately, Anthony’s strong commercial background during his time with organisations such as the NBA, Cricket Australia and the Richmond and St Kilda Football Clubs was what set him apart from the rest.

“Anthony’s demonstrated commercial and strategic nous will be crucial for Basketball Australia as we look to secure stronger non-government revenue streams.

“On top of that, Anthony has an intimate knowledge of our sport and our stakeholders thanks to his own experience in basketball administration and his personal passion for the game.

“Anthony will bring innovative thinking and strong leadership to the organisation as we continue to attract commercial support, bolster grassroots participation and strengthen our relationships with stakeholders and our fans.”

Welcoming his appointment, Moore added “I am honoured to be appointed to the Chief Executive Officer role and I am eagerly looking forward to the task of leading Basketball Australia.

“As CEO, I aim to ensure that basketball is the sport of choice for Australian families and that we continue to be one of the best basketball nations in the world.

“Australian basketball has a wonderful heritage both here in Australia as well as internationally and I look forward to telling our story to new players, our existing players and fans and importantly to corporate Australia.

“Together with our colleagues throughout the entire Australian basketball community, our key task is to continue the growth of the sport at the community level to ensure that basketball remains everyone's game.

“I'm sure that our players and coaches at all levels, as well as our volunteers and administrators throughout the sport, are excited as I am about the next wave of young Australian players who wear the green and gold on the international stage.”
