Equestrian Victoria (EV) today announced that Mitch Fox had been appointed Chair of the EV Board, in place of Peter Dunne who has stepped up as Chair of the Werribee Park National Equestrian Centre (WPNEC) Committee.
Mr Fox is Chair of the Show Horse Discipline Committee and operates a dressage and show horse business with his partner Nicole Touzel. He has been on the EV Board for 3.5 years and has volunteered across a range of disciplines for the last five years.
“I am honoured to be selected to lead the EV Board and look forward to working with my fellow directors and the management team to take EV forward,” he said.
“On behalf of the Board I wish to thank Peter Dunne for his contribution as Chair. Peter has done an enormous amount of work to build a capable Board and establish strong foundations for the future.
“Going forward, our focus will be to strengthen our industry leadership, develop the sport of equestrian as the peak body for equestrian sports in Victoria, as well as supporting our members.
“We are establishing a new governance framework, and a new strategic plan is under development which we expect to release in the near future.
“We are also moving to separate the governance of EV from WPNEC, to enable each organisation to function independently but also for the benefit of stakeholders in both organisations.
“We will keep stakeholders informed of developments as appropriate.”
