PENINSULA Leisure has appointed a new CEO.
The operator of Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre and Pines Forest Aquatic Centre has appointed Katherine Thom to the top job. Ms Thom worked for Yarra Leisure, Life Saving Victoria, and Royal Life Saving Society before her appointment as Peninsula Leisure CEO.
Peninsula Leisure board chair, Julie Busch, said “the board and I were extremely impressed with Katherine’s industry knowledge and enthusiasm for creating, building and maintaining constructive workplace culture coupled with her strong track record of delivering positive outcomes for councils, communities and not-for-profit organisations.”
“Katherine has successfully managed large teams, facilities and programming in both NSW and Victoria and applies a long-term, systems-thinking approach to her work which sits alongside her strong passion and commitment for improving the industry and health outcomes for all of our community,” she said.
Ms Thom said “I’m greatly looking forward to the opportunity to work with such a strong and dynamic team at Peninsula Leisure and to build on the successes of both facilities for Frankston and surrounding communities.”
The previous CEO, Tim Gledhill, departed at the end of last year after six years in the job.
Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd is wholly owned by Frankston Council. It independently runs the management of PARC and Pines Forest Aquatic Centre.
