GRNZ CEO Mauro Barsi resigns
I regret to advise that Mauro Barsi has resigned from his role as CEO of Greyhound Racing New Zealand, and will be leaving GRNZ in mid August 2019. Mauro has accepted an exciting new opportunity, which will be announced shortly.
Over his time with GRNZ Mauro has led our industry through a period of change as we have implemented significant animal welfare improvements. Most recently he has been integral in ensuring that the Greyhound racing industry is well placed during the discussions relating to the outcomes of the Messara report and GRNZ remains well positioned to capitalise on this position.
Recruitment for a new CEO is commencing immediately, and we hope to progress this quickly. We will advise our stakeholders as soon as any further news is available.
On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Mauro for his contribution to Greyhound racing as CEO, as the Greyhound racing industry’s representative on the Board of the New Zealand Racing Board and as a Board member for GRNZ. He has been a part of the industry for a number of years and we wish him well in his future endeavours.
Chair, Greyhound Racing New Zealand
