great interview, seems like a smart bloke and if his strengths are in the commercial side of things and fan engagement then that can only be a bonus. Interested to see how he handles the football side of things or whether they get someone else to come in as a GM of football but glad to have this all sorted before the season starts. best of luck to him and another good move from the club
It gets better by the day !!!The Canterbury Bulldogs have appointed commercial expert Aaron Warburton as their new chief executive to replace Andrew Hill.
Warburton previously worked at the Bulldogs as head of commercial and landed one of the most lucrative sponsorship deals with KIA motors.
The appointment will be announced to members this afternoon.
He has beaten a hot field for the job, including former chairman Ray Dib who was interviewed last week and reached out to major sponsor Arthur Laundy for support.
Warburton has also previously worked at the Parramatta Eels in sponsorship.
The club is now looking to hire a general manager of football to work alongside new coach Trent Barrett.
Hill last month joined the likes of former coach Dean Pay, chair Lynne Anderson, head of football Steve Price plus other members of the club’s executive team to exit the club in an unprecedented re-build on and off the field.
