Please join us at our next online BGS Business Breakfast on Friday, 17 September to hear Brendon Gale, CEO of the Richmond Football Club, in conversation with our Headmaster, Ross Featherston.

In a professional career spanning 12 years, Brendon played an impressive 244 AFL games with the Richmond Football Club.

After retiring from football, Brendon practised law in the banking and finance sector before being appointed CEO of the AFL Players Association in 2005.

In 2009, Brendon returned to Richmond as CEO. Leading a diverse team of over 150 people and handling a budget of approximately $90 million, he is responsible for the performance of all aspects of the organisation.

Under Brendon’s leadership, Richmond’s iconic Punt Rd Oval headquarters has been transformed into an elite high-performance facility, and the Club has achieved record consumer and commercial results year on year, resulting in over 200% revenue growth since 2010. Further, with the establishment of Aligned Leisure Pty Ltd and the Richmond Institute of Sports Leadership, Brendon leads the largest and most diversified sports business in Australia.

Importantly, the Club has competed in seven of the last eight AFL Finals Series, winning the 2017, 2019 and 2020 AFL Premierships.

Brendon is a strong diversity advocate and served on the Board of the Victorian Human Rights & Equal Opportunity Commission from 2009-2013. He is also a current Non-Executive Director of both Aligned Leisure Pty Ltd and ASX listed company, Home Consortium Ltd.

This is a breakfast you will not want to miss! Spaces are limited to 300.
