SRA’s CEO Cam McConville has resigned his position with SRA after three years as the Chief Executive Officer of our sport.
Cam came into the sport in 2018 from Supercars and Porsche Cup with a sports administration back ground. There is no doubt this period has been a tumultuous period for the sport with heavy insurance negotiations in a hostile environment and more recently through the COVID Pandemic having significant impact to sporting bodies across the world.
He has led Ski Racing Australia through a constitutional change, implemented a safety review on helmets, created partnerships with key sponsors, drove government funding and assisted in the introduction of Race Safe and a safety review on helmets. More recently, Cam has initiated cost reductions to keep the sport financially alive in extremely difficult circumstances and has cut overheads by in excess of 70% of running costs (excluding insurance), which included his own reduced hours and salary package on his own instigation, continuing his selfless approach to his role and our sport.
Cam has been doing more and more driver stints for BMW driver days and felt it was was a good opportunity to step back with the season now ski ready for the season. However more recently Cam has landed a GM role and will move to Queensland to kick off his new appointment.
The Ski Racing Australia Board, along with the Racing Committee and the Heads of States and Clubs forum would like to thank Cam for his contribution and wish him the best in his new role. Hopefully we’ll see Cam at the odd race or two.
The SRA board will complete the current strategy development process prior to announcing the future look and feel of SRA and what roles might be required under that Strategy.
