The AFL South East Commission advises that highly experienced sporting administrator John Anderson has been appointed as its Acting Region General Manager with immediate effect.


Mr Anderson comes to the role with AFL South East after his most recent experience in senior roles as CEO Melbourne Football Club (1998-2002) and CEO Harness Racing Victoria (2004-2016). 


Chairman of the South East Commission Roger Hampson said “We are fortunate to have someone of John’s experience step into the role at such an important time for the Commission. He will provide expertise and leadership to the staff during the period when a permanent replacement is sought for the role vacated by Jeremy Bourke."
