CEO

The Board of Directors of Club Taree are delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Allan as Interim Chief Executive Officer.
Paul has a strong connection to Club Taree having just completed ten years of service, the entirety of which has been in the Senior Management Team across various roles including Business Development Manager and Brand and Communication Manager. Paul has held the position of Second In Charge for the last three years and has a thorough understanding of all aspects of our business while also having established connections with the team, our suppliers, our partners, our Members and our Community.
Into the role Paul brings a solid hospitality background and wealth of experience from both his roles here at Club Taree as well as his previous management roles across various five star hotels and resorts.
As many of our Members would know Paul was born and raised in Taree completing his Higher School Certificate with St Clare’s High School Taree before moving outside the area to complete a Bachelor of Business, with a major in Hotel and Catering Management.
Paul’s background provides a focus for his commitment to both quality products and services, while his ties to Taree have established him as a community focused and engaging leader.
In his role as Brand and Communication Manager Paul initiated the successful Club Taree Community Team concept which has now supported our local community by raising in excess of $450,000 and donating in excess of 7500 volunteer hours.
Paul commenced his appointment on the 14th October and whilst in the role will continue to work with Directors, the Senior Management Team and staff as we refocus to honour our Mission Statement, which is to maintain a financially viable community hub that meets the needs of sport, culture, commemoration, hospitality and entertainment through the provision of high quality services.
Paul is committed to working with all Members to create a safe, enjoyable, inclusive, service focused and experience based Club for the benefit of both our Members and our Community.
