Fitness Australia announces results of Board of Directors election

Fitness Australia announces results of Board of Directors election
August 29, 2016

Fitness Australia have unveiled the results from the recent Board of Directors election, with one fresh face set to serve, while two other members have been re-elected to their positions.

Newly-elected Board Member, Rod Harvey, will take his place on the peak body’s table Board for the first time following a successful campaign, while David Allan and Michael Jordan have been re-elected.

Harvey is a highly respected and well recognised member of the fitness industry with a strong connection to Fitness Australia.

With over 20 years of experience within the fitness industry, Harvey’s personal vision in taking on a directorship, is to improve the professionalism of the industry, build Fitness Australia’s profile within the industry and extend its reach to consumers, ‘to get more people moving’.

Resuming his place on the Fitness Australia Board, David Allen has been an influential and tireless member of the Fitness Australia Board since 2011 – being elected Chairman in 2015.

His recent re-election for another term shows his commitment and passion for the fitness industry and Fitness Australia.

Michael Jordan has been a Board Member with Fitness Australia since 2014. His vision is to see fitness clubs become the heart of communities, which he believes will drive a healthier nation.

Welcomed the results, Fitness Australia Chief Executive Bill Moore is now looking forward to an exciting period ahead in collaboration with the Board.

Moore explained “this is a fantastic result for Fitness Australia and the fitness industry.

“We’re fortunate to have incredibly talented and experienced people on our board and these three gentleman embody that.”

The new board will come together for the first time on 14th October for Fitness Australia’s AGM, signalling the beginning of the Fitness Australia 2016 Symposium.

The event is being held at the Royal Randwick Racecourse, Sydney.
