 7 March 2014

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

NMIT has appointed the former CEO of National Rugby League Club, the Melbourne Storm,  as its “interim” CEO.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Ron GauciJohn Gibbins, Chair of The Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE Board announced today that Ron Gauci has been appointed as the Institute’s Interim CEO.

Gauci is described as “a highly respected executive who demonstrates extensive experience in leading change in a number of different business environments.”

He obviously specialises in difficult business environments.

Most recently, Gauci was the CEO and Managing Director of NRL club, Melbourne Storm.  When appointed at the Storm, he was set the objective of repairing the club’s brand at a very difficult time (after it had been stripped of 2 premierships for cheating on its salary cap).

At one stage,  he was also rumoured to be in the running to take the reins at AFL club Essendon, which has been beset over the past year  by a scandal over the alleged use of prohibited performance enhancing drugs.

Gauci commenced his career as a secondary teacher and his wife and daughter are teachers.

“Ron will bring a fresh set of eyes to the issues we are facing,” said NMIT Board Chair, John Gibbins.

Gauci will commence in the role on Tuesday, 11 March .
