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. Cam has headed up the sport through a tumultuous period firstly with the insurance negotiations in a hostile environment and more recently through COVID where sporting bodies and associations have been impacted globally.
Cam 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 RaceSafe. 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 50% including a reduced CEO hours 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 organisation well underway. 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 would like to thank Cam for his contribution and wish him and his family all the best. Hopefully we’ll see Cam at the odd race here or there.
The SRA board will complete the current strategy development process prior to announcing the future look and feel of SRA and any potential role advertisements for Cam’s role.
