Robin Taylor has announced his resignation from the position of General Manager at Wyong Race Club this week. He will be taking on the role of General Manager of Forster- Tuncurry Golf Club.
The Board, while disappointed to lose Robin, acknowledge that the opportunity presented to him was a great fit for him personally and professionally and wish him all the best for the future. Robin has guided the organisation extremely well through a difficult operating environment over the past three years and has been instrumental in advancing many of the strategic initiatives the Board has sought to undertake during his tenure as General Manager at Wyong Race Club.
Robin has expressed his gratitude to the Club for allowing him to lead the business through what has been an unprecedented trading environment over the past four years. He acknowledges the support of his team, industry peers, and stakeholders in negotiating the challenges of COVID-19 and the tough trading period that has followed.
He expressed the hope that race clubs will be able to put the recent challenges behind them and be able to pursue the more positive agenda of developing enticing racing events and reliable alternate revenues streams, making race clubs sustainable enterprises that are valued and acknowledged by their local communities for their positive contribution to society.
To minimise the probable transition period, the race club will commence the recruitment process for their next General Manager in the next two weeks. Robin will remain as General Manager of the Club until Wednesday 26th July. If a successor has not been appointed at that time, management responsibilities will be allocated to the Club’s Management Team, with the Chairman John Waghorn assuming executive oversight during any transition period.
Chairman, Wyong Race Club
