Fitness Australia names interim Chief Executive
August 9, 2018

Following the announcement of Bill Moore’s retirement, Fitness Australia has announced the appointment of sport administrator Greg Harris to the role of interim Chief Executive.

Harris, who will join the peak body as of 13th August, will take on the role for two month period while the selection of a permanent replacement for Moore is being finalised.

He has extensive experience working in Australian sport and fitness, having held roles including Executive Director of Sydney University Sport & Fitness (SUSF), Chief Executive of Rugby WA and the Western Force, Chief Executive of the Rugby Union Players’ Association (RUPA) and Chief Executive of the NSW Waratahs.

In his role with Fitness Australia, Harris will support and guide the team through existing projects and initiatives.
