Cochrane linked to top job at NRL
Tony Cochrane has been linked to the vacant role of National Rugby League CEO just days after announcing he is set to quit his position as V8 Supercars executive chairman.
According to a report in The Sunday Telegraph today, Cochrane is interested in the position left open since David Gallop’s departure in June.
“I am very passionate about sport,” Cochrane is quoted as saying in response to a possible NRL switch.
“And I would consider any role that would help a sporting organisation. I am certainly not retired and would not reject any role in sport without strong consideration.”
Cochrane also expanded on his decision to end his 16-year association with V8 Supercars, which comes just 16 months after a majority takeover by private equity firm Archer Capital.
“I just thought the time was right to go,” he said.
“Following the announcement of Mercedes the other day and with a race in Texas finalised, the sport is just in fantastic shape. I just felt it was time to move on and get ready for my next challenge.”
