ClubMulwala has appointed experienced club chief Rob Dick as interim Chief Executive Officer until a candidate can be found to permanently fill the position.RACHEAL WILLETT August 12, 2014 3:13pm
The club board took steps last week to secure the services of Mr Dick, who took over the ClubMulwala reins on Monday, following the sudden departure of long-time CEO Micheal Mullarvey and Assistant Manager Graeme Edis.
ClubMulwala Chairperson Brian Cossar confirmed the appointment of Mr Dick and said he would continue in the position for an indefinite period.
“We’re very pleased with the appointment,” Mr Cossar said. “Rob Dick has a wealth of experience in the industry.
“He will oversee the operation of the club until a new CEO is appointed. How long that will be I don’t know.”
The community, club members and staff were shocked to learn last week of a sudden “parting of ways” between ClubMulwala and CEO of 26 years Mr Mullarvey.
A board meeting held on Friday, August 1, led to Mr Mullarvey and Mr Edis both ending their employment with ClubMulwala – effective immediately.
The ClubMulwala Board has declined to comment on the reason for the split, simply acknowledging the many years of service from both Mr Mullarvey and Mr Edis and wishing them well.
Neither Mr Mullarvey nor Mr Edis have commented publicly.
Mr Cossar said the priority was to reassure staff of their job security and continue the effective operation of ClubMulwala.
He said the appointment of Mr Dick would help with that process.
“Nothing has changed – it is just business as usual,” he said. “There are things that need to be worked out and I can’t comment on those things but in terms of the club everything is simply going along as it should.”
Rob Dick retired from 20 years services as the CEO of the Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort in September last year.
Mr Dick left his tenure at the club after years of consistent operating profits and with a reputation for strong leadership and dedication to customer service.
