TRU appoints Lyndon Bray as CEO

Tasman Rugby Union announces Lyndon Bray as the new CEO.

The TRU Board of Directors are excited to announce the appointment of Lyndon Bray to the role of the Union’s new Chief Executive Officer.

TRU Board chairman, Wayne Young, notes “Lyndon is a passionate rugby person and is a well-known senior executive with SANZAAR and very accomplished ex-International rugby referee. Most importantly Lyndon brings a proven track record of success as a leader both in rugby and corporate circles”.

Lyndon will be relocating to Tasman and is very much looking forward to integrating into the community. His immediate objectives will include engagement with the TRU staff and directors; commercial sponsors and community clubs so that he can gain a firsthand insight into the requirements of all stakeholders.

“The appointment of Lyndon brings a great balance between passion for rugby and a proven skillset and track record at the executive leadership level. The Board are excited at the prospect of Lyndon leading the TRU”, said Wayne.

Lyndon added, 'I am especially excited and humbled to be given this incredible opportunity to join one of NZ's premier Provincial Unions and to be given the responsibility to help make a difference in the next era of Tasman Rugby.  Tony Lewis has left us all a very well-oiled ship and I am indebted to him for that.  This is a very special new journey for me and I look forward to the challenge.”
