The Perth Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Russell Clark, a former Perth player as its new General Manager.

Russell Clark (51) is an accomplished Chief Executive with extensive experience in operations, marketing and financial management in both sporting and business industries.

Over the past ten years he has spent five years as the Chief Executive Officer of Peel Thunder Football Club (WAFL) and subsequently another five years as Chief Executive Officer of the Albany Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc.

He currently is the CEO of Softball WA Inc.

Perth Football Club President Bob Shields said “we had 80 applicants, and an external panel of four prominent business leaders presented Russell as one of three final selections to the PFC Directors.”

“We Directors then went through our own rigorous due diligence process, and Russell won through.”

“We face a major rebuild of our PFC premises over the next few years, and Russell had management oversight of the construction and business implementation plan for the $10.3M Bendigo Bank Stadium at Rushton Park, Mandurah in his time at Peel.”
