Parramatta. New man at the helm

The board of the Parramatta Eels has appointed Bob Bentley as CEO, of the Parramatta Eels Football Club and Parramatta Leagues Club. Mr Bentley has served as the leagues club CEO since April 2010 and as acting Eels CEO since December 2011 following the resignation of Paul Osborne.

“The leagues club and the football club are intrinsically linked so it makes sense, with the right support structure in place, for us to have a CEO who can implement the board’s strategic direction in both areas,” said Eels chairman, Roy Spagnolo.
