After being faced with many challenges during the last few years, Benalla Racing Club has had a win with the appointment of a new general manager.
Wangaratta Turf Club chief executive Paul Hoysted was selected for the role last week and will take on dual management of the two facilities.
The position was left vacant when former general manager Bradley Thomas left the club last month to pursue another opportunity in Melbourne.
Benalla Racing Club chairman Greg McNulty said last week it was a pleasure to have Mr Hoysted’s experience and expertise at the club.
‘‘Paul brings a wealth of experience to the Benalla Racing Club with his involvement as CEO at the Wangaratta Turf Club,’’ Mr McNulty said.
‘‘He has worked hard at Wangaratta, earning them the prestigious title of ‘Club of the Year’ last season and as a finalist again this year.’’
Joining Mr Hoysted will be Wangaratta Turf Club sales and events manager Nadine Roach. Ms Roach will be assisting at Benalla Racing Club in a similar sales and events manager role.
‘‘With the experience both Paul and Nadine bring to Benalla, we look forward to them both hitting the ground running, getting out into the community and getting more people involved with the club,’’ Mr McNulty said.
Mr Hoysted said it was an exciting opportunity for the duo to be involved in the management of both clubs.
‘‘We are both passionate about the racing industry and want to ensure it remains a strong industry for north-east Victoria,’’ he said.
‘‘Benalla has had some rough times over the past few years, so we are looking forward to the challenge ahead.’’
The Benalla racing season launch will be on Tuesday, September 16, followed by the annual Benalla Gold Cup on Sunday, October 5.
