The Board of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles are pleased to announce the appointment of Tony Mestrov as Chief Executive Officer, effective 1 August 2022.
Sea Eagles Chairman Scott Penn said the Club was delighted to have Mestrov at the Club, who played 17 first grade games for Manly as a front rower in 1990 and 1992, before a successful playing career in the English Super League.
“Tony is one of the strongest sports administrators in the country having been the CEO of Greyhounds NSW for the past five years,’’ Penn said.
“One of his hugely successful projects at Greyhounds NSW was the establishment of the Million Dollar Chase. It is this type of innovation that will benefit both the Sea Eagles and the broader game of Rugby League as we look at expanding our footprint both here and overseas.
“Prior to his role at Greyhounds NSW, Tony was the Chief Operating Officer of the Gold Coast Titans and CEO of Hockey NSW.
“As a past Manly player and long term Northern Beaches resident, Tony deeply understands the unique DNA of the Sea Eagles and our local community.
“Being an experienced sports administrator, he also understands what is required to manage multiple stakeholders in a highly scrutinized environment.
“Tony was firmly in the picture for the Sea Eagles CEO position five years ago prior to him accepting the Greyhounds role and we will now be the beneficiaries from his experience there.”
