Bathurst Greyhound Club will be the first stop on a state tour for Greyhound Racing NSW chief executive officer Tony Mestrov and his deputy Dayle Brown on January 9.
Kennerson Park, the home of greyhound racing in Bathurst, will host the meet-and-greet, giving racing participants, club officials, fans and other industry stakeholders a chance to meet the new leadership team.
Mr Mestrov is a former CEO for Hockey NSW and National Rugby League club Gold Coast Titans.
Mr Brown is a former integrity services executive general manager for Racing Victoria.
Both came into their new roles in late 2017.
Mr Mestrov said he is keen to meet the people involved in greyhound racing.
“I’m looking forward to meeting as many participants, stakeholders and community members as possible in 2018, in what is an exciting and pivotal time for greyhound racing,” he said.
“The industry is only as strong as its participants and these sessions will be a great opportunity for you to share your views on how we can best tackle key challenges and grow the sport for everyone’s benefit.
“I encourage anyone with an interest in the future of greyhound racing in NSW to come along to a drop-in session and have a chat with Dayle and myself.”
Mr Mestrov and Mr Brown have planned to visit another eight NSW greyhound racing venues in January.
