Equestrian Australia Welcomes New CEO
Homebush, NSW, Australia

Equestrian Australia have announced the appointment of Mr. Grant Baldock as the new Chief Executive Officer. The appointment will take effect in mid-April in the lead-up to the retirement mid-year of current CEO Mr. Franz Venhaus, who has been in the position since 2002.

Grant joins Equestrian Australia (EA) with over fifteen years experience in sports administration. He started his career at the Palm Beach (Qld.) Surf Life Saving Club and then moved to Sydney to join Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) where he held various positions, interlaced with sport management assignments at Commonwealth Games and World Swimming Championships. Grant's current position is that of General Manager Surf Sport with SLSA.

"We look forward to working closely with Grant. He will bring valuable experience and a different perspective to our administration. Grant is committed to enacting the vision of EA and we are very fortunate to have him joining the team," said Mr. Paul Cargill, Chairman of Equestrian Australia.

'We are equally sorry to see Franz vacate the position and thank him for his great contribution over the past eight years. Franz will, of course, assist Grant in the weeks after his appointment to make the transition as smooth as possible. I will say more about Franz closer to his retirement."
