Leadership Changes at Aligned Leisure

Richmond Football Club has congratulated Cain Liddle on his appointment as Chief Executive Officer of the Carlton Football Club.

Liddle has spent the past seven years running Richmond’s consumer arm where he drove membership to record levels. He also established the Club’s subsidiary health and recreation business, Aligned Leisure.

“Cain has made an outstanding contribution to our Club and we congratulate him on his appointment,” Richmond CEO and Aligned Leisure Director Brendon Gale said.

“Cain has aspired to move into a football club CEO role and it is a great credit to him that he has been recognised for his business acumen, innovation and leadership.

CEO Shane Dunne

“Importantly, succession planning is always at the forefront of our mind and that has allowed us to now immediately appoint Shane Dunne as Chief Executive Officer of Aligned Leisure”.

With 17 years’ senior leadership experience in the aquatic and leisure industry, Dunne has been with Aligned Leisure since its inception and has led all operations throughout that time.

“It is an exciting period for Aligned Leisure and the broader aquatic and leisure industry”, Dunne said.

“We are thrilled to have delivered completely tailored and innovative solutions for our partners over the last 17 months. By putting the customer at the heart of our decision making, we have seen participation growth across the board.

“I look forward to leading Aligned Leisure through the next phase of our strategic plan, supported by a highly experienced and talented team of leisure managers”.
