Nine topper and former TV host Eddie McGuire has appointed his lawyer and manager Jeffrey Browne as executive director, focusing on strategic development and business affairs.
Browne helped McGuire negotiate the switch from on-air presenter to the network’s top job last year.
But it is not just a case of jobs for the boys. Browne is an experienced player in the sports industry. He acted for the Australian Football League for more than 20 years brokering TV broadcast deals, sponsorship and contractual negotiations.
Browne will take up his position in early May.
